Following The Sun

Nikon D7000 18-135mm @ 135mm ISO 320 1/125 f/5.6 Lr3, TpzSim; PsCS5

One more painterly floral this week.  These Daylilies were also adjacent to the tennis court and when the image was captured at 5:34 P.M. the stems were leaning towards the sun lowering in the southwest.  Similar treatment as the others this week using Topaz Simplify in Photoshop.  There were a lot of distracting elements in the background of this image so I burned in a much as I could in Lightroom, then in Photoshop I painted out the remaining distractions.

Spring Blossoms Through Acid Colored Glasses

A stylized version of some of the flowers blossoming in the sun outside of the local Lowe’s home improvement store.  Not that I ever took acid (LSD), but this is my imagination of an acid trip.

Bowl of Blooms

Celebrating Spring

A bit of change of pace, found taking some sun in front of Lowe’s in Chino Hills, California.   The day I captured this was the first time I tried out my AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens.  I still need to get used to the weight of this glass which is designed for a full sized FX sensor (all my other glass is DX), it’s a good thing this lens has vibration reduction.
