Well went out and shot with a borrowed 50d today. Wasn't the most unique shoot in the world, nor did I have my long lens. But anyways, got a few to share.




50d + 60mm 2.8 EFS

Nice balance with the two almost white leaves on the right. I love the reflection. All in all nice job.

Ah, you've attained such a subtle effect with the reflection within the frame Dustin! Very tasteful capture in which the sunlit leaves stand apart like lush islands crowned by a magical flower...I'd apply about 18% highlight adjustment though to the leaves on the righthandside so as to lessen the high contrast they yield somewhat stealing from the flower.

Bynx - Thank you for your kind comments. Feels good to both get out and shoot, and to share something again.

Bahadir - Thank you for your poetic words. I did minimal processing today when I got back, I planned to go back and give it a more thorough pass. I will be sure to give your suggestion a try and see how that works with the balance of the shot.

Again, Thank you both.
