Petunia after the rain


As evening drew near, the rain stopped and as I looked at the petunias, I saw how the large blossoms held the drops of rain. So, I took some close up shots with the iPhone. I like how the monochrome finish emphasizes the water droplets. #photoaday

Day 249 – Petunia Zoom Blur


Another zoom blur shot, this time of the petunias by the side of our house. I like the kaleidoscope look the effect gives, and you can still see the grass and the gate in the background. This is a hand held shot with a 1 second exposure at f22. I shot in raw then processed in Lightroom and underexposed it, then bumped up the clarity, vibrance, and contrast to bring back some of the detail lost by having the long exposure. I’m going to try using a tripod next time.
