Mellow Yellow

Well, considering it's 3 days away from my 3rd year anniversary of joining Pentaxforums.....I should likely get around to posting my first pic.

I'm pretty happy with this one. Taken with my Sigma 70mm Marco lens, and my K20d.

Like the deep orange. I find my k200d doesn't render this part of the spectrum as nice as yours.

Wow, very bold and striking.

Well done. I like everything about it, including the way the pedals radiate outward from the main elements.

Greatly appreciate the feedback. It made me go back and review the PP setting in lightroom I did on this photo, and I believe I over did it on the colour adjustments. You're absolutely right, the green isn't natural flockofbirds.

I'm going to play around with it a bit later tonight, and post an update. Would welcome the feedback.
