Green Lips

IMG_6969A close-up shot of a leaf in my backyard. Used my Canon 24-70 mm f/2.8L that has a magnification of 0.5x. Some vendors call this a macro lens. I don’t think so 😉

I always use DPP to convert from RAW and sometimes, like on this one, I transfer the file to Photoshop to do some extra editing. here I darkened the background with a levels layer, added details with topaz Detail plug-in and used dodge/burn tool to make the round shape of the leaf’s grooves pop up. The light in the center was the original light when I took the photo. The 24-70 in a full frame has quite some vignetting which I don’t always remove.
