Requiem by Sortvind Requiem by Sortvind
First time i use a texture in a photo, very hard to find one that suited the atmosphere, but in the end i found one that i liked.
Big thanks to :iconinvaynestock:

Used a shallow dof to get some of the flower soft and some sharp, and i put the texture to 7% opacity, just enough to get away the smooth look.

adjusted the contrast and the tone using curves and levels.
mild sharpen in print size and on small size using unsharpen mask.

Lighted using daylight, placed the flower next to the window.

Any form of feedback is appreciated :aww:

What sort of lens did you use? What time of day is this? The image is amazing, I love the soft look for the flower suites it just right. Is the flower placed infront of a bedroom wall?

I really like this shot. I like the lighting, and how you chose to leave so much dark around the bright flower, and toplit leaves. This piece was very well cropped (or not cropped!).

I like the texture...it lends the photo a great mood, making it softer. It looks like an older photograph, which I think fits well with your colors.
The lighting is wonderful :)
