Default Dogwood in my Favorite Light

Soft, difussed early evening light. It doesn't get any better for recording detail in subjects like blooming Dogwood.

E5 and 50-200 SWD was used here, with some vingetting added in Adobe Camera RAW.

Really beautiful images, Greg. Looks like we're about to be plunged back into winter here with SNOW predictions for Sunday

Come on Gary, you've got to be kidding!! Poor people, hasn't the northern states been battered enough? Did the weatherman forget that it's springtime already?

Thanks, Gary.

I hate to hear that. The high temps are supposed to cool down here on Sunday too.....all the way down to 70 .

Come on down guys. Here it is going to be 84 and 64 Sunday. I bet Zig is going to have to get re-adjusted when he leaves for MA next week.

Hi Greg,

Beautiful images and I like the vignetting treatment as well.

Steve, as I sit here typing this it's 25 degrees at home with an expected high of 40....ughhhh!

.....tee-shirt at the baseball game last night, love this perfect temp set & gotta get in the out time before 100+ sets in. Sorry abt the snow-cast Gary and Zig maybe y'all might stay another 30-days in FL.

Like the dogwood Greg, especially the vig-treatment.

Hi Greg

Can;t add more than what the guys ahve already stated and eth PP looks pretty spot on. Have you stopped using OlyStudio to PP the files for the E5 and how do you think the results compare with ACR ?

Cheers

Harj

Hi Harj.

I still dabble with Viewer, but really do prefer Adobe at this point. Better noise filtering, Viewer does not have a straightening option in the RAW converter, ACR's clipped highlight retrieval tool is better than any option in Viewer, and the ability to burn and dodge in ACR are just a few of the features I prefer in ACR.
