The Other Prickly Pear

The Other Prickly Pear

Prickly Pear comes in at least 2 colors in Texas, yesterday’s yellow and today’s red. The exposure problem is the same: keeping the predominant color from burning out. Same solution. -1.3 EV exposure compensation, and restore exposure in Lightroom to desired effect.

Sony DSC H50 at full wide and macro. F4.5 @ 1/250th @ ISO 100. Programed Auto with -1.3 EV.

Cropped from the right. Added Clarity and Vibrance in Lightroom. Landscape sharpen preset.
