Macro: Barbed wire snags

For Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Macro  This week, Sally has an interesting treatment for a Gerber Daisy – you would hardly believe they are the same image.

My close-up images were taken with the Nokia Lumia 520 Windows Phone, on auto.  The featured image (above or at the side depending on your device) was colour adjusted and sharpened in IrfinView before being scaled in GIMP.

The next one seems boring in comparison … maybe I have been fiddling with the settings and I only thought it was on auto…

And here is the same one with the white balance auto adjusted in GIMP…

as above but white balance changed

This last image is as is, only cropped and sharpened…

Which one do you like best?


How about this one…

Thanks for looking. Have a  good day.    🙂


I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

  1. Terrific capture that evokes artistry in an unusual combination of images. My favorite is the second, which in your editing brings out stronger edges and colors. Who would associate delicacy with the wire, and yet the additions make it happen. Happy Photo Challenge.
