Here one day…

BLATANT SELF PROMOTION:
I sorta sneezed and missed it last year, but the 2007 Photobloggies are on and theres only a few days left to nominate/vote. Dave won the NZ/OZ category last year so we need to keep it in NZ. So if you have a spare second, pop along and nominate your favorite (nudge, nudge) photoblog.

THE PHOTO:
A dandelion clock that somehow managed to sprout up in my newly mowed lawn, sticking up very prominently and grabbing my attention.

POST PROCESSING:
Trialling my new method of using Adobe Lightroom and sending to Photoshop in 16-bit TIFF seems to be giving good and fast results (thanks for the heads-up Dave). This shot had a considerable natural vignette and edge blur. I did add a small vignette which was further enhanced after a levels adjustment. Velvia Vision was used to bring out some dynamic range.

    EXIF:

  • Aperture: ƒ/2.8
  • Camera: NIKON D2X
  • Taken: 9 February, 2007
  • Focal length: 150mm
  • ISO: 100
  • Shutter speed: 1/320s
