Before & After


Before taking up photography as a hobby (started last year July),I would just past by these road-side vendors* admiring the flowers. My boyfriend would ask if I want any of them, my reply would be "No" 'cos I don't like walking around with flowers (go figure ..)
Then, came autumn/winter when the wild flowers died down, I found myself without free flowers to photograph. I would then purposely walk by these vendors, hint to him that certain flowers would be good for macro shots..he has no choice but to buy them for me.. :p

*only this part of the town is allowed road-side selling

I cant quite put my fingers on it but you seemed to have done something to the image to make it look very candy like - it looks very neat!!! Cute story hehe

Kris said...

hey, Kala! what i did was increase staturation and since the b/drop was distracting, i've cropped and applied b/w and motion blur ;)

Thank you both for your visit!
