Wild Grass..............Take 2!

I uploaded a picture of wild grass yesterday that I was not happy with & could not work out what had gone wrong! (Basically it was lacking much detail). Along came a good samaritan Pete (snaarman) & suggested that it needed a little flah on it, so this afternoon I recomposed the shot & tried again. Although it is still far from perfect I think it is a big improvement on my first attempt (thanks Pete). C & C most welcome

Re: Wild Grass..............Take 2!

I will justify my previous opinion my saying this is much better (!)


However, even tiny shadows can tell a tale. I this case I am not conviced the flash is coming from where it should be (i.e. above) but from the right and maybe a bit low... Can we do it with the flash up and left?? This may need an off camera flash or an extender lead or wireless triggering, it all depends on what you ahve at your disposal...

Sorry: Am I looking for perfection here? I think this is 90% on the nail
