Not quite here this year, but this shot from last year reminds me of what is to come. And it is somehow works for tax day. I took a series this day as the fiddleheads were just at, imho, their most attractive stage. Again, this is the H50 with its articulating LDC, which allowed me to get right down on the ground with some comfort and shoot from below fiddlehead level. Makes for an interesting perspective. There had to be a balance between a small enough aperture for sufficient depth for the subject, and wide enough for interesting bokeh. Happens the H50’s Programed Auto chose just such an aperture.

Sony DSC H50 at full wide and macro. F4.0 @ 1/125th @ ISO 100. Programed Auto.

Minimal processing in Lightroom. Some Recovery for the background highlights. Added Clarity and Vibrance. Landscape sharpen preset.
