Event Horizon

Event Horizon, June 2011


This is one of those images that surprised me when I saw it through my lens. My original idea when taking this photo was to see what the underside of Queen Anne's Lace looked like. I got my trusty long lens (thank you again Uncle Eddy) out of the kit bag and laid on the ground. What I found was that the edge of the flower blooms was really interesting and the underside wasn't nearly as impressive as I had imagined. So, I took the shot of both just in case, but took a few extra shots of the edge of the flower to be sure that I got it right.

Back at my desk, I performed some basic tone and contrast adjustments and converted the image to black and white in Aperture. I then cropped to 1×3 (one of my favorite crops) and called the image finished.

Exposure 0.002 sec (1/500)
Aperture f/5.6
Focal Length 280 mm
ISO Speed 200


Queen Anne's Lace


Here is a picture of the entire bloom, just in case you forgot what Queen Anne's Lace looked like.

Have a great day folks.
