Back from hiatus
I've not been around in while, just busy with life and what not . I hope to try and start hanging around again. We'll see what life throws my way. I had the day off and shot some photos of various flowers I got my wife. These were shot with an old FD 50MM macro lens. The first 2 were shot with extension tubes the rest are just the lens. There all shot at various apertures and exposures at either iso 100 or 400. As usual I've done very little editing to them, not my favorite thing to do. Give your thoughts good or bad. Thanks in advance.
I guess a lack of contrast and pop would also lead to feeling muddy like image 3, where all grey exist between like 30% and 70%
Here is a flower photo I did that fails on all levels
the larger flowers have nice pop but the overexposure ruins it. but notice the small cluster of flowers in the middle that should draw your eye to it but doesnt because its just to damn flat, initially underexposed and dull looking.
