Plant Photo Post Friday

For this post, I'm going to show some of the experimental work I've been doing to my photos lately. I love taking detailed, realistic photos, but I've also been curious about modifying interesting photos to make them more striking.

I took a (not-so-exciting) photo of a spiral aloe and did some image processing steps in a free program I use for scientific microscopy image manipulation called ImageJ. I think the results came out kind of cool, and I think they're more interesting than the original picture. I'm displaying them here from "cool" to "hot," and then I finish with the original, unretouched image. I'm thinking of offering these modified photos as a series of four, so let me know what you think.

  1. Beautiful! I love them all. You have a really exceptional eye for design. Even the original draws the eye in to take a closer look with the light playing off each leaf. :-)
