…his toeses are roses…

(Regardless of the accuracy — or not — of Moses’s supposition, he was careful to watch the RGB histogram and underexpose 1.7 stops to keep from blowing out the red channel.)

  1. Wow! What a great, rich red, the petals really look like they’re infused with living blood, not sap – and a mountain silhouette in the dark shadow, with the peak (at least to my eye) perfectly centered.

    Phenomenal – haha, you’re forgetting the thorns of the roses on his feet, thinking of what he had to deal with after that mountain experience!

    • Stay tuned for next post. All shall be revealed. One thing has experience has taught me is that in any shot where a specific color predominates it’s really easy to over expose it, and checking the RGB histogram is vital.


  3. I agree with Robert – that is a great rich red. The curves of the petals lie just right, and the shadows work well. I’d be happy to have a high-quality print of that on my wall.
