Hi Kareem and welcome to the forums. :)

I am afraid that the link you've supplied for your photo isn't working. If you have Flickr, details of how to share it on the forums can be found here . We'd love to see it. :side:

lets play by jim.stcroix , on Flickr

Just playing with sliders in lightroom.
Exposure wasn't the best, so i cranked up clarity,saturation and vibrance to max. I kind of like it though.

Finally some blue skies!!! So here ya go, I figured I'd add a little spring flowers into the mix. Here's a trio of a Bradford Pear tree flowering in my yard.

I guess it should have been obvious, but the light went off(no pun intended :D) when you pointed out to shoot the opposite direction of the sun!! :unsure: haha

Similar, but different, than the guys and girls in England, here in Seoul, Korea, I have trouble getting a good quality blue sky. The sky might be a nice blue, but cloudless and boring, plus there is a lot of low-hanging haze that makes shooting the mountains less-than-desirable. Anyway, as luck would have it, this afternoon, on the last day of this challenge, a few wisps of clouds moved in to give the blue sky some feature. I was really hoping to capture some signs of Spring-on-the-way, but, alas, had to settle for some remnants of last summer.

Here, I tried to put into practice the Sunny f/16 rule, but being late in the afternoon, I tweaked it to f/11, shutter 1/200, ISO 200, with a touch of flash, just enough to light the withered rose. I also tried a technique I saw in Outdoor Photographer, using a wide angle lens with extensions tubes to get in nice and close, but I did have extension tubes. I'm using the Tokina 11-16mm lens, with a 1.4X teleconverter (instead of extension tubes) which allowed me to get just a little bit closer to the flower...just a little bit...

Also, here is a vertical shot, with my Canon 24-105mm f/4 L USM lens, also with the 1.4 teleconverter...but I think the horizontal shot came out better...
