The Garden

The garden, in Burton On Trent, England, was shot with a Canon G5. F2.5 1/60 sec Using a Pattern Metering Mode and Using -0.7 Exposure Compensation.

I used several layers to put colour into this picture of a garden. The Blue, Yellow, Red and Scarlet flowers have all been cut out as a layer and placed onto the desaturated black and white picture. The sky comes from Southern Thailand.

I chose this sky because it creates a sense of disharmony in the picture. It tries to disrupt the continuity of the picture and attempts to ask the spectator to question the reality of what they are looking at.
