Tones on Tuesday #71 4.2.13

Fighting some kind of bug which is why this is a little late. The link up will be open a day later as a result.

Sarah at Sarah Carletti Photography
I love the soft colors in the sky here and the way the road and fence leads your eye back to it. Thank you for sharing Sarah!

Susan at SWightR
The depth of field and muted light adds to the overall vintage feel of this photo. I also love the composition of the books. Thank you for sharing Susan!

Sivinden at Wait a Minute...

This weekend the weather was gorgeous! I spent it going for a hike and then visiting the Bellevue Botanical Gardens for the first time. What an amazing place! It is full of many different garden areas and many of the flowers were blooming. I was able to play with my macro lens and capture some fun flower shots. The one below is my favorite. I am sharing it in black and white today, but on Thursday you can see it in color along with other photos from the shoot. My favorite thing about this shot is that the cluster of flowers was about the size of a half dollar and I was able to capture the detail and beauty of something that looked so ordinary at first glance. I had to use my tripod so I could use a high aperture number and get most of the flower in focus. 

Settings: ISO 800, 100mm, ss1/20, f/11 (on tripod)

  1. I hope you start feeling better soon. Beautiful selections and the texture in your flower photo is just wonderful.

  2. Nice composition and I like the cluster of small light flowers against the the big dark leaf shapes.

  3. That is a very pretty little flower.


Thank you for leaving your thoughts! I love reading your comments and critiques.
