Raghav, your composition are nice, but these pictures need some serious post-processing to make them look great. Check the potential: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/308734-post14.html

Thats right Shaz, I wanted to give it a gloss filter look and it got oversharp and over saturated

Great pic.

Can somebody tell me how to create that border in PS. I use a long tedious process of layers. Any one knows a simple solution?

I know there are web packages you can use in PS that will create a web album out of a folder of pics and also create borders , copyrights etc. I'm unable to recite htem off memory as i dont have PS on my laptop.
here is another way to create borders, create a canvas thats slightly larger than the image, fill it with black and put the image on the top layer. Not really a long process but it works.

Hi Mayavi,
Here is a very quick way to create a simple but effective border around your image, this is the way that I do it but there are other methods too.

Once you have your image completed.

Step 1
Select > all (Ctrl+A)

Step 2
Edit > Stroke

A box will open where you have options to select colour, width, location and opacity. I usually select my colour and the width but leave location set to centre/Inside.

Step 3
Select > Deselect. (Ctrl+D)

The above method will give you a quick and simple method of putting a clean border around your image, you can repeat the above a second time but with a smaller size and a different colour, this will give you more than one colour of border but is still not that impressive…

Yes, this is for photoshop only. Hope this help.
Have nice time.
Biju

Today I shot with JPEG+RAW mode just as I promised other day.

The JPEG Image, untouched, only in-camera processing.


The raw image, after post-processing in PS.

Dude. I like the 2nd pic. Can you take the same pic with a greate DOF wherein the all of the leaf's fingers??? are sharp and the rest is blurred?
If my guess is right (which is more often wrong than right) you blurred portions of the snap during PP.
The leaf in the background (left) has sharper tip than the leaf in the foreground which is quite impossible using optics.
Also i'm quite keen to learn how you got the rose/pink stuff during PP? Can you share the knowledge pls?

^^ The only PP I did was using DPP, to adjust the white balance and change the picture style to "faithful". Except for these 2 changes, the image is as it is from camera. I was testing a new lens, so was not concentrating that much on the composition and all.

I dont know how to do partial blurring of the images in PS or using any other tool.

The leaves are pink themselves...

This one would have fallen by now... will try another leaf tomorrow if possible.
