Week 12: Theme - Spring

by Tracylynn Seeger March. 24, 2011 8230 views

Week 12 of my 2011 Photo-a-week challenge. These snowdrops bloom in front of my house every year, so I always know when spring is here. Shooting them was a challenge, as it was very breezy, but I managed to get the shutter speed fast enough to freeze their motion.

Kit & setup:
Nikon D3100 camera hand held
85mm macro lens
Shot outside on an overcast (and breezy!) day

Post editing (PSE8):
Adjusted the lighting and sharpened.

EXIF Data:
Exposure 1/400 sec
Aperture f/11
Focal Length 85 mm
ISO Speed 1600

Lovely, but I find the cropping a bit tight, but I am sure you had a reason for this.
