The photo without manip:

--
I'm not sure about the category. I cloned out the stem of the rose in the bottom right corner, so it isn't a 'photo'. But besides that I didn't add or remove anything, I only upped the contrast and saturation and reduced the noise as usual.

To me it doesn't feel like it's enough to go into the Photomanipulation category because I didn't use more than one picture, or painted things in, etc. Someone once told me that for in-between pictures there's the Darkroom category. So that's what I went with now, although I'm not sure if it counts for this kind of editing as well.

Ah well.

:boing:

Post-processing: I cloned out the stem of the rose in the bottom right corner in the GIMP, and I upped the contrast and saturation and reduced the noise (grain) in Noiseware. The bokeh and everything else besides the lack of a stem is real.

My photos are NOT stock. This means I do not want them to be used in any way. I don't mind them being used as a reference for a drawing/painting though: please visit this link for the rules [link]

That bokeh looks cool, like water droplets or bubbles suspended in air.....Beautiful rose in this saturated color, looking almost velvety.

Bokeh is the way out-of-focus areas of a photo, particularly points of light, are rendered in blur. [link]

I love this site, but personally I've never been happy with the category system.

Usually the categories work for me, but with some pictures I'm not sure. I wish dA would have a description of each category somewhere. Maybe they have and I just haven't found it yet.

Ah so beautiful! Wonderful work, I like how you blured most but kept the rose on focus... Hmm but you didn't blur the fingers in the back - I'm almost curious how it would look with the hand all blurred ~ none the less I think it's very moving. Your photos hold a lot of depth for the viewer to take and work with. It's not just- 'one look and you're done' - it's each time you look, it keeps you thinking.

Nelleke Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2012
That's the focus :) The fingers which are touching to rose are in focus, because they are the same depth as the rose. I didn't blur things by hand afterwards.

Thank you very much! ^^

baha well focus / blur then ~ it can be easily manipulated so that's why i went on blur as I didn't think this was an actual photo shot by a camera. (but maybe for the hand it was! IDK XDD)

And your welcome! I love your work so much *_* gives me such inspiration!
