Umbrella Rose
Lens: DFA 100mm Camera: Pentax K-5 Photo Location: Home ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/180s Aperture: F13.5 

I've been going through my Lightroom library in an attempt to find lost photos. That is, images that I lost track of and never processed. Here's one that I took 18 months or so ago. I call it Umbrella Rose since you can see the modifier's reflection in the water.

Not sure if I like it or not. I'm red/green colorblind and am concerned it's oversaturated. It wasn't lit properly for macro work and needed a lot of processing to get to this point.

As always, recommendations/ideas are welcome.

Happy shooting!

Good shot! I am viewing this picture on my laptop screen which is pretty dull to begin with. But if the rose seems really saturated on my screen, I guess the saturation is high. Again, it's your choice - if that's the look you're going after!

It looks good to me. It's a deep red, with just enough softness, but maintaining some detail in those droplets. I'm viewing it on a brand new Dell ultrabook at 1080p, and it doesn't look over-saturated to me. But I also like my colors to pop, so I might not be the best gauge.

Thanks for the feedback. Color blindness is a weird thing, for sure. In fact, it downright bites as an amateur photog.

I can only imagine. I used to have a buddy who was red/green, and through some miracle, he was able to pass his certs to be a fireman. I remember one of his tests involved sorting through colored wires...yikes. I also commented on your HDR shot of that train coming out of the tunnel (on 500px) -- thought it was nice

I saw that. Thank you very much.

I didn't realize I had color blindness until I was 25 or 26. That's when I stumbled on a color blindness test and failed, of course.
