Close-Up Plant Photo
Here is a plant photo that I shot by the end of summer in a local school garden. The original photo was really bad, with extreme highlights, but then I noticed that the plant was not too much overexposed, only the rest of the image.
I cropped the plant out, got closer on that way, and decreased the exposure a little bit for correction. Even that close, I was happy to see that the plant was just a little blurry, and that I could fix this with sharpening and a little amount of clarity.
I like the result, except that I would have preferred a little bit more space around the plant, but as said, I had to crop out so much to get rid of the overexposed areas in the image.
