Raw... Day 28

by Loren Knoppi January. 29, 2017 1362 views

Today I did get out and go for a walk in our local Arboretum. It is a very small one, and in the Spring/Summer it is very pretty!  Today it was a blank slate as winter has wiped away all the colors, except for the browns. 

I took these photos, and left them as they were taken. I haven't done anything to them except pull them off of my sd card. I wanted to leave them raw and unedited to see what you think. 

I have not even cropped the photos down.

I like how the extremely shallow DOF created such a beautifully soft background.

Thank you Gene! I was trying to get the background to be soft and add to the photo instead of taking it away

Great potential in these images - depending on how good the focus actually is. Hard to tell on the blog. Looks like you might have missed it just. there's lots of great texture and detail and I love the muted colours

Hi Audrey! I was mainly trying to ensure that only the hanging seed pods were in focus while everything else was softened. On the dried hydrangea I mainly wanted the center of the blossoms to come in focus, but I have to agree with you - I think it would have been nice to have gotten the full flowers and the stem on the seed pods to be in focus and everything else muted.

Beautiful textures - sometimes winter brings a lovely simplicity, with no garish colours

Helen, I have to agree with you on it. I do love all of the seasons - each one has a special view to it and it's just gorgeous.
