Amy Jones : Things that Float


i hate to be cliche but this zinnia lived for 2 months after i cut it from our front beds and i figured this would be a proper burial. there’s no shortage of empty jack daniels bottles at our house! other shots here.

top camera- d40 w/ macro filter
bottom camera- voigtlander brillant (extra dim viewfinder on that one!)

no retouching but would love for someone to tell me what to do about that hot spot?

  1. so no one knows how to get rid of that massive hot spot? cuz cloning & color replacing didn’t work.

  2. What no Jameson bottles around? Tsk tsk tsk… As far as the highlight goes, only thing I could think of would have been to underexpose the shot enough to get some detail in the neck of the bottle and then bring up the rest a bit in photoshop. If it’s completely blown out (ie all white) then there is really no data for any of the filters/tools to pull back out.
