Tones on Tuesday #35 6.5.12

Mona at Mona's Picturesque
Lovely soft colors, a beautiful texture and a dreamy depth of field. What a wonderful shot! Thank you for sharing with us Mona.

I was absolutely amazed to discover that these flowers were real. The pattern and shape looks so uniform that I thought they might be fake. I love the lines in this photo. The composition and framing draw attention to the unique nature of the flowers. Thank you Ruth for linking up!

I often refer to black and white as either dramatic or soft in tone. This photo is one of those dramatic ones for me. The way the black and white emphasizes the abstract nature is amazing. Thank you Leovi for linking up each week with your captivating photos. 

Love, love, love the adorable expression and the softness of the black and white tones. Such a wonderful moment captured and a stunning photograph. Thank you for sharing!

Another precious little one with such a cute expression! I love the catchlights in the eyes and the natural frame of the play structure. What a great photo Kelly-Marie! Thank you for linking up.

What an amazing photograph! The composition is lovely with the gravestones and the tree. The black and white adds just the right amount of drama and gives and overall reverent feel. Thank you for sharing with us!

For my photo this week I have a campfire photo from a recent trip to the Oregon Coast. My goal was to capture the beauty and color of the flames. I love the drama of this photo and it only involved a tiny bit of tweaking with the basic settings in Lightroom. 

Settings: ISO 200, 55mm, ss1/30, f/5.6
