succulent in overcast light

I was outside to get a shot of the Falcon 9 launch from Vanderberg AFB, but no luck with that due to a layer of marine clouds. So I just messed around taking shots in the overcast light.

Shot about 30 minutes ago and quickly processed:


[Nikon D7500 with Nikkor 18-300mm taken at 90mm, shutter priority, 1/800 sec, f/5.3, ISO 500, processed in ACR then PSCS5]

C&C is always welcome.

Re: succulent in overcast light

Thank you Norm, Natalie, and Ginny.

Sometimes you get lucky and things come together: right place and right time (unplanned, but I'll take it) with a camera that performs well in low light, appropriate camera settings (I got lucky - I just kept the settings I had chosen for shooting the rocket launch), interesting and flattering light, surprisingly little hand shake, and successful (although approaching overdone, I think) processing.

For those interested in seeing the "before" version, here's what it looked like before cropping and with the only adjustment being an exposure adjustment in ACR (to lighten everything - it was almost black everywhere, with just a few areas of garish yellow-green here and there)...



There is probably a better crop that could be made, and as hinted above I think I came close to takiing my processing in PSCS5 too far.

Re: succulent in overcast light

I just got done reading you daily post and commented on your beautiful flower shot in that thread BUT...

...This one tops the one in the daily.
Love the lighting and crop.
All is perfect.
