Daff on the Rocks

Happy Sunday.

This lonely Daffodil, posed against a granite bolder with its lichen in my daughter’s piano teacher’s yard, somewhat caged by dry stems, caught my eye. The bright yellow, the vibrant green, the texture of the stone and the delicate tracery of the weeds. This is another shot that employs the long end of the macro zoom on the SX20IS to good advantage.

Canon SX20IS at 560mm equivalent and macro. F5.7 @ 1/400th @ ISO 200. Programmed auto.

In Lightroom, some Recovery for the yellow in the Daff, a touch of Fill Light to offset Blackpoint to the right, added Clarity and just a tiny amount of Vibrance. Sharpen landscape preset.

From Around Home 2010.

    Lovely shot of the daff, but I find the ‘cage’ a bit distracting, probably because it so crisply in focus. I’d have been tempted to do a little bit of gardening!

    Yes, I was tempted, but it was NOT my yard :). More Daff shots coming maybe. Got some good ones this afternoon.
