Slindon Village Daffodils

Slindon Village Daffodils
The Shot

Last Saturday was sunny and warm, not a tunnels day so I took a bike ride round my local area ending up at the small village of Slindon on near the South Downs, West Sussex coast, UK.

I wanted to take Daffodil pictures but find them a difficult subject especially in getting one flower to stand out from the bunch and to do something different. I went for a view looking up and into the light with the branches of a tree in the background. I added to this some quite heavy HDR processing.

The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A550 with a Sony 15-56 zoom at 45mm. One RAW image was opened in Photoshop Camera RAW first to create 2 extra exposures for HDR at 2EV separation. Each image was noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.

This picture was enhanced with HDR processing followed by Topaz Adjust and Photoshop to bring in more detail. Processing included pasting in a selection from another image for additional flowers for better balance on the right of the picture.

Full details of the processing together with before and after images are on my Blog see Edwin Jones Photography Blog
