BEAUTY IN A WILD FLOWER

Okay I have created a monster. Sinem has really caught the photography bug. Help someone I want me baby back (ask does he mean his 20D or his Sinem?) :) I think she has got the eye for some fantastic shots looking at the shots she has been taking over the last few days.
 
I will be over the next few days, letting Sinem take reign over the blog.
 
Need to point out, she takes all the shots all by herself, she does not have me over he shoulder telling her what to do. She also does all the editing herself . She has been sat in the study all day with Scott Kelby and the Internet trying to learn how to edit her images. I have very slightly only pointed her in the right direction. So hit or miss, the images you will see are all hers.
 
Please can the constructive criticism start while Suby takes a back seat and catches up with editing some images for the paying customers.
 
I think I have to seriously start thinking of either the Canon 5D(all 5D owners on Shuttechance, guard your equipment) or the dreamy Canon EOS 1Ds Mark II  As it seems the 20D has a new owner :)
 
That just has to wait until after the wedding for now :)

Hello everyone!
 
I hope I am not rattling any cages or ruffling any feathers as a non-blog owner featured on Suby's blog, but I have finally caught the photography bug and need a platform to express myself and get feedback. I'd like to also use this opportunity to thank Suby, my better half, for giving me this wonderful opportunity and for having to share his baby with me!
 
I have been out all morning - from 11.00 am to 3.00 pm - capturing anything and everything that lives, breathes or stands still. I got back home after 3.00, and realised I hadn't eaten anything all day, and my jeans, t-shirt and coat were disgustingly filthy as a result of throwing myself on the ground at every chance to get a good shot. All in the name of art, you see... Anyway, without further ado, my second shot on Suby's blog.

love the summery look very nice
Suby & Sinem: Thanks, tbone. Yeah, it looked so summery and bright yesterday despite the cold breeze; today, however, is a whole different story, so we, uk photographers try to make the most of summery days - that is, if we are lucky enough to get one every now and again : ))
Very interesting duality you present here, Suby. I think the saturated colors work here. Regards, Brent
Suby & Sinem: Thank you, Brent. Howeer, if you look at the page again, you'll find that it was Me, SINEM, who took this picture. Subomi has been ever so generous to give me the opportunity to post some stuff. Sinem

WOW, i love the contrasting colours. Its a lovely composition.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks for the comment, Amit, it was the contrast that caught my eye as well. Sinem
I really like the composition and vibrant colours of this shot. Spring is Here! Spring is Here! I have just flown back from Poland where everything is very brown due to it all being under heavy snow and it was wonderful to see all the greenery and daffodils on my trip home from the airport.
Suby & Sinem: Hallelujah, Spring is here! Great photo opportunities out and about; what with daffodils, roses and blooming trees. Thanks a lot for the comment, Sinem.

So glad to have you as a new member of the community! I must say, this shot is fantastic! Here's to many more to come. (If I'm shooting, I don't want to eat either. Hmmmmm, photography--The New Fad Diet.
Suby & Sinem: Thank you for your kind words, Micki. I have just taken up photography but one day, I aim to be as courageous as you are in my excursions! Thanks, Sinem

I really like it! Beautiful flowers, wonderful colours and a great background smile And nice words with the post smile
Suby & Sinem: Thank you, Dia, I take great care when choosing the words for this blog, as you may have noticed from some of Suby's posts. Thanks, Sinem

Dunno about summery. This is packing in the Easter vibe, in my opinion. Nice composition and colours.
Suby & Sinem: Thank you for your comment, James. Sinem
This is a great shot. DoF is perfect. Bright and cheery.

Regards,
Jason
Suby & Sinem: Thank you, Jason, as I got blasted about my use of DoF in the last picture I posted here, I am taking extra care these days with DoF. : )) Sinem
Very nice composition and DOF! Lovely colors! Keep this photo blog for you and ask Suby to start another one for him... ;-)
Suby & Sinem: Thanks, Sidney, trying to hijack the blog, but first the beloved camera then the beloved blog hijacked by the other half might be more than Suby's poor heart can handle! Sinem

Lovely composition. Well done. Why dont you start your own blog? Would be great to see your stuff on a regular basis.
Suby & Sinem: Hi, Nkemo, thank you for the comment. I'd love to have my own blog but I've just taken up photography very recently. Give me time to build up a portfolio, till then you can see some of my stuff on Suby's blog. Thanks, Sinem

These are just beautiful! And I love the way you did the background. Nice job.
Suby & Sinem: Thank you, Jill. The background wasn't easy to capture as I found out when I got home with damp trousers covered in mud and grass stains smile

Suby this is really really good, i am impressed.
wait a minute, i just read the caption, Sinem this a great shot. Two photograpers in the same house, i can see the fights. LOL. again this is great
Suby & Sinem: Asiko, trust me, the fight has already started and will go on until I get my own camera! smile Thanks for the comment, Sinem
a great spring shot. i really like the POV.
Suby & Sinem: Thank you, Sabinche. Sinem

Nice idea; however, I would have liked to have seen more of the flowers in te foreground. Welcome to photoblogging.
Suby & Sinem: Thank you for the warm welcome. I do realise now that I could have had more pity on the flowers in the foreground. Sinem

Sinem,is this really yours? The reason i ask is that this could easily be Suby's work. quite impressive for someone just starting out, though i wish u hadn't cropped the flower on the left. I really like your poetry, and i noticed how every now and again Suby has a go at waxing lyrical... There's this saying about iron sharpening iron. i think it applies with you both of you.

Do you know what this could mean? In-house competitions. Now, that would be fun. Do keep it up, you can only get better.
Suby & Sinem: Yes, Morenike, it is really mine, all mine... Yeah, now that you mention it, shame about the flower on the left. I might just go back one of these days to recreate the shot, with all three flowers intact. Iron is certainly sharpening irn in our household. Thank you for your comment, Sinem
i like this, particularly how uv captured the castle in the shot. beautiful. would have been nicer though if the story also tied it in...somehow smile
Suby & Sinem: Oh sorry, it's actually a church tower in the background, in the small, idyllic village of Odell in North Bedfordshire.
Thank you for your comment, Sinem

wow! Nice shot! great capture with the flower... and very nice gothic designed church belltower.
Suby & Sinem: Hi, S. Crypt. Thank you for your kind works. Yes, I also like the belltower, it looks eerie in winter. Sinem
This is really good. Great use of Background and foreground!
The yellow of the flowers is brilliant. You have used the DOF well. The building in the background makes the shot special.

Oh, this is a wonderful shot, and the dof is perfect. I love the perspective.

I can well imagine you needed the 1/1000th shutter speed to stop these, and the other 9,992 daffodils, tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

This, for me, is a really good composition. Concentrating on the daffs and throwing the church out of focus gives emphasis to the main subject while giving them a sense of place.

One tip if I may: try the eye-dropper tool in either Levels or Curves to set the black, white and mid points to make the colours (especially the sky) more true and vibrant. Scot Kelby (bless him) explains how to set default values for these in his Photoshop CS2 book.

I like how you've composed the photo. I would prefer a little more depth of field to be able to see more of the church, but I suppose it's a matter of taste. Nicely done.
Brilliant and beautiful!!!! All of your photos are magnificent! I look forward to browsing through all of them! Well done!!! : ))
