Lekki #1 : Underconstruction

I really don't get it. Why is it that when I am most ill or feeling blue I tend to bring out the best out of my post processing. Maybe because at that time I can slow down and exercise a bit more patience.

I spent about 30mins post processing this shot and I am very pleased with my correction. Yes, worked on almost every element of it as the original image had a very flat feel to it. I will not steal the credit away from the lens as it's the reason why the image has turned out so sharp. I've been experimenting with depth in mos of my mono posts recently and I think this one nails it for me.

Okay right now I'm going to go back and rest, the flu has hit me and I'm not enjoying the current experience I am having with it.

I absolutely love this shot Jide! What lens did you use? Stonking PP!
Jide Alakija: Thanks E, I think I used my 100mm Macro. I took this almost two years ago.

3. To have a jolly, noisy celebration.
4. To express or arouse enthusiasm; cheer.

Basically bravo, I like it a lot! Gets it?
