Flower in Window


Good morning good people of the internet. If you are a bad peson of the internet, then you are on your own.

Today's image is pretty simple. A potted oxalis plant in the kitchen window at the farm. This image is straight forward. The difficulty lies in the dynamic range of the camera's sensor. I wanted to show the blue skies in the background while still showing some details in the shadows of the flower. A rotating polarizing filter helped to pop the sky by increasing the contrast between the white clouds and the blue sky. Without the filter, the sky would appear almost wite with little distinction between clouds and sky.


Exposure 0.013 sec (1/80)
Aperture f/5.6
Focal Length 50 mm
ISO Speed 100


Have a great day.
