Project MCP April

Another month has gone by and it's again time to share the images from Project MCP for April.

Project MCP April, Challenge #1 and #3

Challenge #1 - Illustrate the following in a photo: Showers/Wet
Challenge #3 - Interpret the following in a photo: Blooming

I decided to combine challenge #1 and #3 this month when creating this image.

This photo of a gardenia flower was taken in my garden after a break in the rain.

The SOOC image was originally of a white flower on a green background. In an attempt to make the water droplets more obvious, I tried a few Lightroom presets and settled on "Purple Glasses".

Details: Canon 7D, Canon EF 100mm f2.8L macro, 1/800sec @ f11, ISO 800

Project MCP April, Challenge #2

Challenge #2 - Take a picture using a shallow depth of field.

Passion Fruit Flower

Details: Canon 7D, Canon EF 100mm f2.8L macro, 1/80sec @ f5.6, ISO 1250

Project MCP April, Challenge #4

Challenge #4 - Get low. Lie down on the ground and shoot above.

Details: Canon 7D, Canon EF-S 18-200mm f3.5-5.6 @18mm, 1/60sec @ f5.6, ISO 200

Update:  I am also including the flower images in Flower Art Friday



  1. oh my goodness! all of them are stunning. it's funny, when you mentioned that the first image was a gardenia, i thought to myself "hmm...i didn't know they came in purple" and then I read you changed it from white. Wouldn't it be lovely if they did come in different colors!

    1. It would be lovely if they came in different colours. Isn't photoshop great?

  2. Just lovely! Either of these flowers would be a lovely addition to my weekly linkup "Flower Art Friday" Here's the link. hope to see you there!

    1. Thanks for the invite LeAnne. I would love to join in.
