Excellent the placement into the black background for the rose plus high contrast as the lighting is good and the color well vivid, very nice image Mary.
Best regards!

Hi Mary,

EXQUISITE!!!!!! The red rose on a pure black, and having off-centered into the corner makes for a very creative and artistic presentation.

Congrats!

Glad it worked for you Mary! I get the first few results from my NEW macro lens tomorrow, with another roll of 36 well on the way after that. I may try me a black background... I certainly like this one!

Mary Brown   {K:71879} 7/17/2005
Roger, you're wonderful! Thank you soooo much for your suggestion re cutting something from the background. I had a chance to try it out and it sure is a WHOLE lot easier than I had done. You do know lots.

Ah, Roger, my good man, I knew there was some easier way to extract an object--because what I did was a lot of work and PS is supposed to make these things fairly easy. I just don't know the program well at all and am picking up hints and tips as I go along. Thanks so very much for your suggestion.

Dear Mary, I have PS7 too, although I still know PSP better and therefore prefer it. I think I can follow your description but it DOES sound like a lot of work. One thing in PS that works a lot better than PSP is the magic lasso (?sp). That can select a background colour right up to the edge of your foreground object if there is sufficient colour contrast between them. I would be tempted to try that rather than paint stuff out... but what do *I* know?

Mary Brown   {K:71879} 7/10/2005
Roger, which program do you use? I now have PS 7 so that's what I have been trying to use excusively in order to get used to it. Here's what I did. I know there has got to be a way easier method to isolate the rose, but I don't know that, yet.
--I outline the rose as closely as possible with the lasoo tool. (sp) --Edit-Copy. File-New and opened a new background in plain black. ---Edit-Paste --Moved the rose to wherever on the page --this is where it got tedious and needed patience. As I said there has got to be a much easier way to isolate the rose for copying. Anyway, with the pasted in rose came some of the background from the original picture. I made sure I was on the rose Layer and used the Background Eraser tool at 100% and various brush sizes to erease all the bits from the edges of the rose. Don't do too much at a time. If you get a lot ereased and then slip into the rose and have to start that one brushing over, it's not good.
I hope this is clearer than mud. Other programs would have similar features. If you don't understand something I said, just ask and I'll try to clarify.
Take care,
Mary

Mary, that's pretty weird. I haven't had anyone else tell me about any problems viewing my portfolio. Hopefully you can access it soon, if not, maybe bring it up in the forum?

This is the kind of macro that encourages and challenges me to keep stumbling along, far behind, with my own efforts. How did you get the jet-black background? I'm having a lot of problems with backgrounds and I'd like to try this.

Toshi, I am having trouble getting into your portfolio. It doesn't load in. This is a couple of days now. Do you know if anyone else is having the same problem? Everything else seems to be working fine for me in UF.

Bob, thank you so much. I am pleased that you think I am improving in my new hobby of photography. Oh, you bold man, you. Feel free to say whatever you like. As far as a creative side; photography is certainly a different medium for me and I am thoroughly enyoying it. With a few other things I've done before, people have been kind enough to say they found my results creative, so perhaps it is not new, just re-emerging.
Take care, Mary

A lovely rose for your mother-in -lae and a most lovely photo of it, dear Mary.
Thank you for your kind comments on my "Waiting." The man in it turned his head just as I took the photo, my "Gold earring" and my "Self loving tree" both spotted by Rachel, my "Goodbey at the station" and my "Memories from Paris 20 and 21."
Best regards,

Excellent image Mary. I can see you put a lot of time and thought into this composition. I can see an evolution in your images, an emerging sophistacation and exploration of your artistic sense. I see a side of yourself that is awakening in this medium that may not have had a chance to flower before? Can I be so bold as to state such from so brief an association thru Usefilm? Never the less it is what I feel, right or wrong.

It's a perfect classic presentation, but I guess I'd like the frame to be equally perfectly classic ie. with the two vertical bands...
