There was some really great “golden hour” light streaming into my dining room last weekend. These flowers on the table were glowing, and one flower was lit up much brighter than the others. It turns out that the camera didn’t quite capture what I was seeing. The dimmer portions of the scene turned quite dark… but this flower still stood out from the others.
The wind and rain killed my chances of going to see the Branchbrook Park Cherry Blossom Festival this weekend. I did get to stop by Brookdale Park in Montclair which has about 4 Cherry trees in bloom. This was one of the better images, taken with the GF1 and 20mm. I used an ND filter so I could shoot with the lens at f/1.7 to get the nice shallow depth of field. I like the monotone pastel color and the contrast on either side of the blossom in focus.
Ever wonder what happens in a cubicle at 5:01pm?
