photoblog image Grease Leaf

Grease Leaf

O.k I was trying to cheat a little trick I picked up years ago when developing B/W film rubbing oil on leaves if you want to take photographs of them. it didnot work on Digital maybe because,

1. I rubbed a considerable amount of oil on it...heehee...lol

2. too cold to try again and look for a better leaf...heehee...lol

 

PP: New adjustment layer/Levels to adjust Midtones & Highlights,Freehand Lasso tool over the leaf and then used the feather  at 125 pixs, New adjustment layer/Colour Balance for Colour control on the leaf,DUPLIATED Layer to make the colours very punchy,in the duplicayed layer went to IMAGE>ADJUSTMENT>INVERT...and then played around with the background

Thanks for the PS recipe! This is useful information, at least for novices like myself. I also like the unusual perspective on this oily leaf. What did you use for the background? It doesn't look like a wintry scene.
great angle and idea this way

That's one hell of a lot of processing work to put into a picture of A LEAF! Looks pretty good though - apart from the use (as you say) of too much oil.
