Daff Looking Up after Rain

My wife Carol and I are in Florida for a week, but we flew in late last night so I am still working on the shots from last week around home in Maine. In that same interval of sun between the storms on Sunday, the Daffodils in the yard were fully open but bowed over and  hanging down almost to the ground. I flipped out the LCD on the Canon and got this from ground level looking up.

Canon SX20IS at 28mm equivalent and Super-macro. F3.5 @ 1/250th @ ISO 80. Programmed auto.

In Lightroom, Recovery for the sky and for the yellow highlights. A touch of Fill Light. Blackpoint slightly right. Added Clarity and just a smidge of Vibrance (had to be careful or the yellows would have blocked up). Sharpen landscape preset.

From The Yard: Kennebunk ME.
