26 Nov – 2 Dec ’11
Some more yard work this weekend. At the end of the day I noticed the low evening sun illuminating the garden.
This sweet little sculpture was a gift to me from my late mother-in-law, Bernadette. It’s new position in the garden means it catches the setting sunlight.F-stop f/5 Exposure time 1/320sec ISO speed ISO-200 Focal length 55mm
The picture needed a little tweaking to realise what I’d envisioned. I had the camera set on auto white balance, so it’d removed the warm evening tones. These I replaced in Lightroom. Then quick dash over to Photoshop to apply a vignette to enhance the intimacy of a stolen kiss. Some times overdone, I think for this shot it works?
I have tubs of English lavender growing along the deck. The setting sun always lights the flowers beautifully at this time of year.F-stop f/5.6 Exposure time 1/400sec ISO speed ISO-200 Focal length 125mm
Larger aperture allow for the narrow depth of field that has only one flower in focus, the rest blurring out nicely.
