FCAS Submission

I think this got lost back there some where.Only one person has looked at my submission and left a comment

Okay here I go again Round #3. This is really addicting stuff! I tried something a bit different this time around...black and white instead of color.

My set up consisted of a piece of black foam core board placed behind my subject using natural lighting from the sun.

My camera settings were as follows:
Camera E4500
Firm Ver E4500V1.2
Metering matrix
Mode A
Shutter 1/261
Aperture F 5.3
Exp + - -0.3
Focal Length f27.30mm
Focus AF
Speedlight off
Image Adjust cont +
Sensitivity 100
White Balance auto
Saturation +1
Sharpness auto
Digital Tele X1.00
Converter off
File Size 1294kb

My Photoshop work flow was as follows:
1. Used clone tool to get rid of unwanted leaves
2. Used magic wand tool to select background
3. Adjusted brightness -100 and contrast +100
4. Adjusted hue -180,saturation -100 and lightness -100
5. Inverse selection.
6.Applied unsharp mask 100,2.0, 1
7. Deselect image

9. Convert image to black/white using channel mixer: Placed a check in monochrome box; Red +40, Green +40, Blue +10; Constant 0

10.Used blend tool on edges
11.Created a drop shadow frame
12. Added my signature using signature brush.

Any comments and/or suggestions as to how I can improve this image are more than welcome and will be greatly appreciated.

Well now it's time to cross my fingers and wait

Keep on trying!
