06.03.2015 Framed Yellow Star-grass

Occasionally I like to make a replica of what an image looks like framed.  It’s a good way to judge mat color and the see the effect framing has on presentation.  Next spring I will be exhibiting in our Town Hall and have to choose around two dozen images to hang.  I originally thought I would just use images from town, but am not sure whether I want to stick with that or stress a topic such as flowers or water.

Here is another angle on the yellow star-grass from last week.

  1. An excellent presentation: the two bright yellow centers of attention stand out all the more because of the darkness around them, and that darkness itself gets doubled by the black frame you added.


  2. The frame makes it perfect although I would like to see more of the stem of the flowers. It is a beautiful photo, at any rate, Steve.

    I especially like the way the light plays on the hairy stems and such. It’s those little details that really make a photo shine. And despite my dislike for black frames, I think this one does a fine job of making the presentation more dramatic. It would stop me in the midst of a gallery.


  6. It would stop me in my tracks, too. Belly Botany at work for this one, I think 🙂
