Capturing the essence by helenhall

Capturing the essence

I considered the small crop of snowdrops in our front 'garden' to be a suitable subject for the black and white study - especially since it was the background interference that was causing me so much trouble a week or so ago when I first shot them. Whack up the contrast and decrease the exposure and that might help to keep the attention on the beautiful drop.

So this is what I did (more or less) and I now believe what I am left with is a low-key image.

Quite pleased with this one.
Beautiful, your snow drops are certainly ahead of ours!

Well done, there's nothing indeed that can detract from the flower.

Beautiful high contrast shot. Thank you for including info about the flash of red month in your previous post. I've joined up and am finding it excellent stimulus and learning

I have to be amused, as I posted on my facebook account and everyone told me they could see a penguin and not a snowdrop. I was just a touch demoralised as well as amused, but they are right - squint and the penguin appears and once appeared never goes away.
