Spring flowers surrounded by snow. It has snowed since I posted the last picture. Its funny to see snow considering that only about a week ago it was nearly 30C.
About the Photo
*Camera: Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS *Lens: EF 50mm ƒ/1.8 II *Shutter Speed: 1/500Sec. *Aperture Value: ƒ/1.8 *ISO: 100 *Focal Length: 50mm (80mm Equivalent in 35mm Film)
I shot this handheld using live-view and manual focus because I didn't want to get my knees wet on the grass by using the optical viewfinder. I overexposed by two stops over the metered exposure. I opened the RAW image in ACR and increased the recovery slider slightly and also increased the blacks slider to make the dark parts of the flowers stand out more. I increased the clarity, and manipulated the tone curve slightly to maintain a high-key feel to it. I slightly saturated the yellows and the greens and opened the image in CS4 where I cloned out a few distracting weeds. I then converted to sRGB colourspace and saved as a JPEG to post online.
