[Ownstuff #2] Redness

Hello again, people!

So to all those who haven't known yet, I have created a new format for this blog named Ownstuff. Today's Friday post will be of the same format as the last one which is... Ownstuff of course, you silly twerp.

Okay, enough of those irrelevant chit-chat, and on with the post!

For the information of all, I have this DSLR Camera which I often use when I get bored, or just when I am looking for an output for my pseudo-artistic imagination. It's called the Nikon D3000, a starter-camera I am trying to play with.

Check this shot out. I shot this random plant in our backyard using the D3000 on Manual mode.

I call this work: "Redness"
As you can see, it's lightly manipulated using Photoshop CS3, and I know, I am doing a very bad job at mixing the colors right. Hey, I just a newbie, and I think it's all good. Besides, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder", they say.

Personal Comments/Remarks:
-I think it's too "green"!
-The credit font is not that good

So what do you think guys?
Don't worry, I'll have lots of similar works in the future. That is, if I am sure that I will have improved by then!

Feel free to share your thoughts!
I accept constructive criticism, because it helps me improve!

Also, please do suggest some fonts if you know that it will look good in photography themed projects.

  1. I think it looks good, but maybe a little dark. I don't know much about photography myself, but I'd love to see more!

  2. to be honest, I like it as it is :D
    looks pretty cool and very professional, particularly the font and its effect looks nice!

    keep it up, great work!

  3. That picture is great, your camera must be a beast.

  4. Really awesome composition.

  5. i love the green and red in your pic, they work well together

  6. Really good. I actually think it looks a little like a painting.

  7. Looks very professional in my amateurish eyes.

  8. Good work! I do a little photography here and there too! Use that D3000 to the fullest of it's potential!

  9. Looks great especially if you say you are a newbie.

  10. Man, isn't it nice having good gear to practice with? I was using a Fuji Finepix 5000 for almost 7 years until I got a Canon 60d...

    I ain't dissin' the Fuji, but DAMN. And the 60d isn't some anomaly...Just...using something good..

    Actual manual focus. For real. Fush.
