Default Fun In the Sunday Morning Rain

What a great weekend for shooting in places normally crawling with people having portraits shot. It can rain all spring as far as I'm concerned. The camera and I were both pretty darn wet by the time I finished. Fortunately, being the 12-40 zoom involved no lens changes.

"Framing" the subject..





A bench with a view..

Beautiful, 2-3 and last one are outstanding.

I'm not sure are the lens or the post processing that make your pictures very sharp but I noticed it before you had the 12-40mm f/2.8

Not sure if this is accurate but your pictures in my monitor shows a little under exposed, it is just me or someone else has the same appreciation?

Thank you for posting.

....yes, a bit underexposed on my iMAC 27 but that is IMO Greg's style which makes his beautiful final results. I try that and usually it doesn't work as well for me.

Thanks guys.

The shadows were deep morning in the rain and I exposed for the highlights, raising the shadows in post processing. They look a little darker on my iPhone this afternoon at Katherine's too. Darker than they were on my monitor at home.

I noticed it too but thought the darkness was in keeping with a dreary, rainy day. You could probably get away with lightening it up a some, just enough to bring a bit more detail to the shadows, but if it's taken too far it might as well be a sunny day.

Nice shots Greg. You guys have to remember that it seems like 75% of Greg's flower shots are always in shade or rain. But his shots always work. LOL.

His style always stands out to me as different. That's because I'm a Florida boy and prefer bright sunshine for my flower shots.
