This is the 4th year gardening an we still have everything to learn. It's just Nature at its best and some luck, rather than skill or knowledge :-)

Lol @KariSamuel I found an app on the Playstore called pip camera and it helps you make collages and other funky things and it's free. One advert to X each time you use it but for that one ad quite a cool tool :-)

Fabulous photo. Is there a trick to make the Allium stand out from the background?

4w
comment
fcmp

Thank you @kaigia yes you have to use an app or programme to wash the whole picture black an white then pick out the bits you want in colour an shade them. It's not difficult just a bit time consuming depending on the picture. I used an app called colour splash effect :-)

I love the black and white background with the colour just on the flowers in your photos. Do you do that right on your camera, or some sort of filter/editing afterwards? It's really cool. 😀

4w
comment
fcmp

@sweettemperedsinner It's an App on the Playstore. You just edit by painting the bit you want in colour. Can be a bit fiddly but the results are just like you say "Cool". Thank you and Hope this helps :-)
