Chris Jameson’s winning image ‘Say it (Boldly) with Flowers’

Chris is now the proud owner of an X-Rite ColorMunki Display.

The flowers were a birthday gift for my wife, they were such stunning colours I felt compelled to photograph them. This was my first attempt at still life and I tried many different ways to get an image of proper impact. Using the landscape lens gave me the perspective that I felt had both detail and depth.

Chris used a Canon 50D & 17-40 f4L lens, off camera flash and tripod. The image was processed from RAW in DxO OpticsPro to make standard adjustments for the camera/lens combination. It was then processed in Lightroom for a catalogue & histogram check, then transferred to Photoshop for jpeg output.
