Foam Flower against the Log

Mayflower against the Log

It is the season for these close up views, low to the ground where suddenly everything is in flower. Canada May Flower. It was all over, but it is small and tends be hard to photograph because it is hard to make it pop out from the confused background of the forest floor. Here the log made a nice backdrop.

Sony DSC H50 at full wide and macro. F4.0 @ 1/60th @ ISO 100. Programed Auto. -.7 EV exposure compensation to preserve detail in the white blooms.

In Lightroom, some Recovery for the blooms, added Clarity and Vibrance, sharpen.
