Pink Gladiola. Backlit during golden hour.

It has been rare for me to take a shot and make zero edits in Photoshop or in a mobile app. These days I’m shooting in raw mode, using the manual or AV (aperture priority). I’m still getting used to my 60mm lens and dislike using my tripod. Therefore I have been taking many shots to get a few or even one good and usable image.

I’m tempted to say I got lucky here and maybe I did. This back-lit image was taken yesterday evening during the golden hour. As I said, it is not often I take a photo that requires no edits.

My Canon Pro-100 Printer Class is tomorrow. I think I will use this as one of my images to print. Stay tuned.

This one needs to be frame. It is absolutely beautiful. It's light and airy, if one can describe a photo with such words. The colors really stand out. All in all perfect!

Thank you Camellia.
I took it to my printing class today, hoping to get a good 13 x19 print on my Canon Pro 100. I have a little work to do and realized I need to calibrate my monitors. I’ll keep you posted. I fell in love with this image when I saw it so am looking forward to getting a great print.

This is a keeper. This is what I mean, you have to start from a good photo and a minimum of edit .

That it a noble goal that I strive for every day. I look forward to the day when it isn’t a big surprise, but the norm. Thanks Peter.
