Photo a day! Since it’s only the second day of the New Year and I did say I want to get back into taking photos, after not really do much last year with my photography. On the first day, I took a photo of my wine glass with a nice red wine taken with my smartphone. Today I finally got my camera back out and went out into the garden to see if I could see anything that I could take a photo of. I was lucky to see an almost dead flower, I think it must be hidden from the weather and somehow survive. After taking a few snaps I was soon back inside, I dislike the cold weather. I quick edit in lightroom and it’s ready to post. Hopefully, another tomorrow, I’m hoping to take at least one per day during the year.

Strange how it survived the cold weather. By the way how did you remove the background and only kept the flower?

I edited it in lightroom, I have some presets which took care for that, basically, it darkens the outer and leaving the centre, you can do it the opposite way round and made it whiter (see the photo, I do like the darker better), I think it's called a Vignette. You can do the same thing in Photoshop, but I'm not sure how to.

@Madshadi Thank you, in Lightroom it really is easy to do, not sure about Photoshop.

It can be hard to keep up a photo a day - or a post a day - or anything a day - but good luck with your goal.

Oh, I know all too well, even for 30 days can sometimes be hard for me.

It came out pretty good. The flower is somewhat ragged but you captured some life in it.
