365-266 Oglebay, part II

Oglebay revisited. Today I wasn’t sure how my schedule was going to play out. By lunchtime I thought I was either going to remain at work until dark or it was going to start raining very hard for the rest of the day and I would be done for the day. So I thought I would swing by the park I was at yesterday during my lunch break and grab a few flower shots with my Super-Takumar 50mm lens. Plus I wanted to get a few extra photos of the palm leaves that I shot yesterday for my files. Yesterday I focused on somewhat abstract photos but today I went with basic floral shots. I used the Takumar for depth of field control. And although the straight photos look pretty nice and colorful, I was playing around with some different post-processing this evening to get a different, sort of pastelly, dreamy look. I like to mix it up on occasion! By the way, it ended up raining this afternoon and I headed for home, secure in knowing I got some decent shots in for the day. Pentax K20D, Super-Takumar 50mm.

  1. The first image, Reds, is absolutely beautiful. I don’t normally like flower pictures but it is fantastic. You normally focus on textures, but I really enjoyed your break from the norm on this one.
