This is an experiment... The photo of this snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis) was taken outside, with a ringflash. I wanted to show the unseen part of this first flower of spring.
But I was not satisfied by the background which was a dirty black. I selected it, desatured it and change the color. Some corrections with the clone tool.

Hi Catherine,

You achieved a superb BG which gives wonderful contrast to this first marks of arrival of spring season!

Great details, captured from a perfect POV, where colors are natural, shown with perfect use of the light. Well done!

Bonjour Catherine

Superbe présentation de cette magnifique fleur. L'arrière plan

A true postcard shot of a snowdrop and PP Work Arkadaşım Catherine.
Really seems to stand out against the dark "silvery" background. Can't fault this, well done.
TFS and have a nice day!

ton équipement pour la macro a l'air au top!
magnifique rendu
certes on voit que le fond n'est pas celui d'origine mais tu t'es bien appliquée

comme j'ai un bridge et non un reflex hier j'ai regardé pour m'équiper de bagues macro... flash annulaire cela sera pas possible...

Hi Catherine,
An excellent capture of the macro of this snowdrop which is said to be the first flower of Spring.
Great details of the flower adorned with precise lighting, the ringflsh worked splendidly here!
Very natural colors and a superb contrast.
Nice grey BG and a marvellous white margin to enhance the presentation.
My best regards,
