What do you think about this image?

Posted 23 December 2008 - 01:17 PM

I've captured a lighting candle and afterward I've made some photo editing in Photoshop. The result is this:
Posted Image

If you also have a candle and you want a similar result I’m going to reveal the little secret (of course, I've used Photoshop). Having the picture with the candle (I initially started with this image). First of all the flower support for the candle wasn’t visible. So I went to FILTER > RENDER > LIGHTING EFFECTS and I directed the default light to down in order to have the support visible. Afterward I've used this tutorial to create the wooden frame, and this tutorial for the picture to be more pleasant to the eye :D .

I like it! The bloom effect gives it a soft feeling. The colours are relaxing.

The only thing I'd do would be removing the border.

gothik12, did you take the photo? if so you may want to drop your iso and if you have the option of another light sources on it you can drown out the harsh light then increase your shutter speed to give you a better white balance and less grain.
