Flower of the Day – October 27, 2017 – Nasturtiums and how to save a bad image

Digital photography is a great improvement on the old fashioned film photography that some of us might remember from last century. Particularly in that the result is instant so you can see if you took a good pic straight away and reshoot if you did not get it right the first time. (Without having to wait 2-3 weeks to get your negatives printed before you found out if it was a good shot).

Sometimes, however, you may not have had an opportunity to see if the shot you took came out just right and only find the shot does not look like you wanted it to when you are back at your computer. You may not need to take a new shot or delete a pic that does not look like you want – if you are able to use some of the photo editing programs available today.

Case in point: These nasturtiums were an unusually light shade of yellow/white and were in bright sunlight that i knew was going to glare out the petals somewhat so i shaded them from the sun as i took the shot. Unfortunately i could not shade the background and my camera could not adjust the two intensities correctly.

Some might have discarded the image as unusable but it took less than a minute to rebalance the image detail to see the Nasturtiums in their true glory. 🙂

(Click on the pics to open in a new window and click again to see full size detail. 🙂 )

So the moral of the story is: don’t delete a digital image until you’ve seen if it can be saved with a little tweaking! 😉
