Default Bright colors -- Chihuly

I recently got a new Tokina 12-24mm wide angle lens, and got a chance to experiment with it when I went to the Meijer Gardens Chihuly glass sculpture exhibit. The exhibit places Chihuly's sculptures in the midst of the garden, conflating art and nature. This photo is an example of what the exhibit was like. The photo has a 13mm focal length. If you are interested in seeing the entire set of these photos, you can go to http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/63...EC4A0CC8863043

Is the red in the upper right the Chihuly sculpture. If so, it looks like it belongs there. Beautiful shot.

Yes, that's it. The whole exhibit was really cool.

Last year, a similar concept was displayed in Tryon Creek State Park, located just north of Lake Oswego, OR. This is a beautiful wooded park with dozens of hiking trails ranging frem easy to moderately difficult. There is one loop that is paved for wheelchairs. In this loop, artistic sculptures were displayed. All of the sculptures related to the environment and the surroundings. Typically, there were at least six displays that were changed about once a month. The last time I was in the park, about two months ago, the art was gone.
