Re: Stems off kilter

Thanks for the views and comments colleagues!

I thought the title would be a give away clue  

I was testing my then new Pentax K-01, this is from a sequence of Bird of Paradise studies.

It is a tight in camera crop of stems in a vase, the camera is tilted. I sprayed water on the glass, the differential focus and DOF has rendered the spray particles as a "noise" texture while glass and water refraction add to the total effect.

In post, I added an S curve in the CURVES function to enhance contrast to highlight the water surface.
