Photographer's Note

Firstly, i would like to thanks for your supports to me at fist photo on this flower serie, wich wake me more confident to continue this serie.
This 2nd photo of In Quest for Nektars, which i call Trough The Looking Glass, will be my last post until next several days (or weeks, not really sure). This is my last time working at night, so i cannot concentrate more on photos anymore in next days (too much to do at day shift).

This is my neighbour's orchid. They have plenty of beautifull orchids, and they ask me to take a photo for this one. I take this orchid out at 9am or so, and let the warmth color of January morning sun shine on them. I gave them the prints. They happy, and i'm very happy.

I love Reala. They give very pleasant colours and nice contrast with minimum grain. I took 2 version of this photo to test this film, one with metering rated at 100, and this one rated at 80. I love this version more, because the color of the other version was not bright enough. After that, I always rated fuji slightly lower than suggested speed. Well, some people say no big difference for 1/3 stop with negatife, but its still a difference for me. Unfortunately, no fuji dealers in Balikpapan have Reala, so i have to order them from Jakarta, but its a waste of cost and time, so i dont use them anymore. Sad but true.

Post processing : some despeckling to eliminate scanned dusts, resizing, and unsharpmask to compensate loss of sharpness after all that process. No color balancing or other retouching. I decided to give the frame another chance, tell me what do you think, frame or no frame.

Thanks for all of your kindness, and i hope you enjoy this.
Sorry if i can't return your favor, because i can't online much often now.
See you soon.
