Flags a Flying

Flags a Flying

These tall marsh grasses are in full fruit here in Southern Maine these days, and, on a windy day like this one, they fly like flags at the edges of every marsh. I shot from waist level up, to catch the seed head against the sky, and had to apply some Fill Light in Lightroom to bring out the color in the silhouette.

Sony DSC H50 at about 300mm equivalent. F6.3 @ 1/2000 @ ISO 100. Programed auto. -1EV exposure compensation (for the sky).

As I said, Fill Light in Lightroom for the colors of head. Slight Recovery for the sky. Added Clarity and Vibrance in the Presence panel. Sharpen landscape preset.

And the video version.
