flower power

Camera: Canon 20D 1/250 f/5.6 -2/3EV Aperture Priority Lens: Canon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 with macro attachment

This is an image I captured on my photo walk Wednesday. The image was taken on a hiking trail within Cherokee Park in Louisville Kentucky. No surprise - the color is what drew me in. The surrounding plant life was dominantly green and brown while the plant here simply stood out. I pulled out my cobbled together macro lens and started playing with focus priority and depth of field. I made about 11 exposures of this image - this one was right in the middle. This is the image that I liked the best. I've made some minor brightness adjustments and applied a light vignette within Lightroom to spotlight the central focal point. I don't claim to be a nature photographer - but I was very happy with this exposure. Enjoy!
