    frosty flower like thingy

    Hello!

    This is my first post here in cambridgeincolour

    Two weeks ago it was a very beautiful chilly morning, and I decided to go searching for some nice pictures. My favorite shot of the day was almost the first one of the stroll, and here it is. It doesn't grow on the ground if someone is wondering, it has fallen from a shrub of a kind. I don't know its name even in Finnish. I'd like to have c&c; I really do not have so much experience with photographing so far.

    I thought about cropping it, but then I ended up not to. I have a shot also in landscape mode, but i like this one more. Shot in raw, and I did poke the white balance controllers, I tried to make it natural and good looking off course, but perhaps i didn't succeed. I think I like it though.

    yes you could crop some from the top and not lose anything but it is crisp, clear and beautiful. Well done. xx

    This Quick Reply doesn't seem to work with Chrome :/ but luckily it isn't a problem to use fox fire

    Very nice shot. Have you thought about cropping a little bit off the bottom?

    Cropped, and added some border. Did it do any good? Can't decide if I like the border or not..

    Not too sure about the border either Maybe a light vignette instead?

    Thanks for the comments

    After good night full of sleep, definitely no border for me, at least of that color. Malcolm, I think that vignetting might fit this one! Ill definitely try that in the evening when I got more free time.
