a good day with the camera

As I was walking here and there yesterday taking care of some errands, I had my camera with me as usual. I'm glad I did, because not only did I come across some photos worth taking, but my camera's refusal to enable autofocus miraculously fixed itself.

Anyway, while walking to the bank to deposit my tiny tax refund check, I visited a small local park that is lovingly tended by local volunteers. (The park is a nationally recognized habitat for Monarch butterflies, but this day it was the flowers that had the starring roles.)

1) You know me - I never met a macro that I didn't like (unknown small blossom)...

2) I should know what kind of flower this is, but can't remember...

3) This lone flower is also unidentified...

Earlier in this walk, I got interested in parts of several small boat trailers.

4) zooming in on one part...

5) A nice red hitch with chains...


[Nikon D7500 and Nikkor 18-300mm at 62mm, manual mode, 1/1600 sec, f/8, ISO 320, processed in ACR then PSCS5]

6) rust & chains - always an appealing subject for me...


[Nikon D7500 and Nikkor 18-300mm at 52mm, manual mode, 1/500 sec, f/9, ISO 500, processed in ACR then PSCS5]

Your C&C is always welcome; don't hesitate to point out where I've gone wrong or overdone post-processing.

Thanks for looking.

Re: a good day with the camera

Dave, I don't think any are overprocessed and that you did a good job considering the bright sunlit conditions.

Flower #1, Not sure if I like the angle that this was taken. Slightly more of a side view would have been more flattering. I also am distracted by the green thingy that is coming out from behind the flower.

Flower #2 Duet. Great focus on those petals and patterns and their interesting patterns. This shot really appeals to me especially the details in the edges of the petals and how they look like they were torn.

Flower #3, Lone flower. Two thumbs up for this one. What awesome contrast. great position of the yellow flower in the composition and the coloring is so natural yet vibrant.

#4, I don't know what that part belongs to but I do like the rusty browns and greys in the image. The angles and diagonals are good in this composition too.

#5 A hitch? Whatever rocks your boat!
But I got to say, you did capture a good red color and I like it with the silver chains. Looks like it was a recent paint job since the silver chain has some red paint on some of the links.

#6
that's the only one that doesn't look as in focused as the rest. Maybe it is just cause the object looks like it has been coated by sea salt from the air. Lots of good texture here.
