I had been wondering how to make such kind of photos. It is much easier than what I have thought.

  1. Hmmm … I have no idea what’s that flower is. Let’s me know!

    This flower has a technical name as “Cannonball Flower” (and in Khmer we call it Phka Raing Phnom).

    Sovathana, thank you very much for your information. With it, I even found out that its scientific name is Couroupita guianensis Aubl.

    Hey, Thanks for sharing? I never know how to do it this way. As I told you, i just use the saturation, and Vibrance in Adoble Photoshop Light Room, the result is similar.

  6. What’s the other name you’ve got, bro? I don’t seem I could pronounce it right!

  7. tumnei says:

    Borin, I have installed and had a look at PS LightRoom. I did not spend much time with it but I feel that it lacks of functionalities comparing to Photoshop SC. So at this moment, I still stick with PS.

    I am not better than you, sis.

    I know that flower too. It was a long time that I saw it at one of the pagodas in my hometown. Hope the trees are still alive. Hey Phal, btw you did not concern any privacy violence by posting a girl in that picture. Or got her special permission heuy 😉

  9. tumnei says:

    In Cambodia the trees are mostly found in temple and its flower is considered sacred in Hinduism.

    I have infringed many people’s right of portrait, so one more does not make much different. Let’s pray for me not to be sued, friend. haha^0^;

    The flower is Phkar Raeng Phnom if I am not wrong. I know Raeng Phnom Very well but for the flower you posted here I am not quite sure as I ccould not see it clearly.
