Throwback Thursday – Clover

Throwback Thursday

I’m attempting to stick with this Throwback Thursday theme I created two weeks ago but as you can already tell I missed a week. Maybe I need to play this one loose and see what shakes out. Anyway…

This week I’ll stick to an early period in my photography and use another image captured with my Sony P&S. This one is from October 2011 and I believe I was exploring as much as possible in my own yard. I was getting out more often but still only capturing a few images at a time. This was also at a time when I was exploring Google Plus more and attempting to participate in as many week day themes as I could.

The original image is a monochrome conversion of a piece of clover from the field behind the house. I was going for a back light setting and totally lost the sky when I over exposed the image. I converted it to monochrome in an attempt to hide what I had done… 🙂

There technically is not a lot I can change on the image. I went with my square format as I like the balance better. I played with the colors in the original file to allow me to convert to B & W with a little more ‘pop’. I stayed with the over exposed look but toned it down a little and then added a silver tone to the over all image.
