This was processed in and . The flower was well isolated from the surrounds in-camera. In Photoshop I made a mask to completely mask the background. In #SilverEffectsPro2 #SEP2 I used a "standard" Fine Art filter and a light selenium tone. I then added a vignette filter in #ColorEffectsPro4 #CEP4 and a Darken / Lighten filter. Back in Photoshop, I cleaned up a few spots and some edges I didn't like. Back in LightRoom, I made a couple of final tweaks and exported the image.
Well, for the time being I've given up looking for a used Canon 5D Mark II. I had bough one but the base was warped from mistreatment. Luckily, I was able to return it to the store where I bought it. Instead, I bought a new 7D Mark II for my wife and a new Canon EFS 10mm-18mm macro zoom to go with it. I got her hand me down, a Canon 7D. It's not nearly as cool as the 7D Mark II and not as versatile as my, now officially dead, Canon 5D Mark II. I thought about buying a Canon 5D Mark III but it's lack of GPS and wi-fi made it less than compelling. I think I'll wait to see what the Canon 5D mark IV has to offer. [ Rumored to be in the works for 2016 ]
With the new lens, I have a comparable field of view to my old 5D Mark II with the 16mm-35mm attached.
