Another week and another color for Project 64. This week the color was burnt orange which seems very appropriate with the fall foliage popping up everywhere. I love the colors of fall and how things change in some cases slowly and in others quickly. I saw many examples of burnt orange in the leaves and pumpkins I was photographing for other prompts, but I wanted to stretch myself. So yesterday while photographing the sunset at the Tmobile building in Factoria (more about that later this week) I saw this plant. The light was very low so I had to use a tripod to get the shot. I think it really works with the soft lighting that showcases the color and the interesting lines of the plant. In post processing I did a very clean edit in Lightroom by adjusting most of the basic settings and doing a tiny bit of noise reduction. This is yet again another plant I have no idea the name of, but I am ok with that :o). Thank you for stopping by and I would love to know what you think!
Settings: ISO 800, 36mm, ss1/15, f/5.6 (full manual on tripod)
