Funny rite....the 3D effect was unintentional...heh. The one I printed looks even more 3D....

No editing except some color balance to match the original slide, seems my Nikon LS2000 gives a rather dull look at original settings, me not good at monitor calibration.

------------------------
EOS300 + 28-135IS @135

4.5 (had wanted to use 6.7 but then shutter would be too slow and I had no tripod, I already shooting 2 stops slower, can see the tip is not in focus)

1/30 handheld (thanks to IS! :D )

Fuji Provia 100 pushed 1 stop (Sensia looks juz as good, but too bad no bulkload)

------------------------
I do have something to say about this. This roll was developed using Fuji Chrome6X E6 chemicals. When I developed a Kodak EC 100, the colors were less saturated, looks abit dull. I also developed a Provia roll using Agfa chemicals, dont look good either...guess I need spend more time on experimenting, but Chrome6x is already giving me very satisfactory results.

I had actually wanted to shoot at 85mm for a flatter pespective, however the lotus was too far away from the edge...so no choice use 135...but once developed looks quite ok :rolleyes:

Oh, I used a polarizer, if not will see through the water and see the roots and stems, will then look very cluttered. Also because of this, the leaves look less green.

But I reckon since the main subject is the lotus, it should be fine to treat the water n compromise on the leaves...

Shot setup as posted above. Thanks for the comments! :)
