The Very Last Flowers from Machias

So, apparently I lied about the Last Flower from Machias, but when getting some pics of my daughter’s concert appearance off the card, I discovered a few more from the overgrown flower maze at University of Maine at Machias that I had not remembered taking. I took an early morning walk on our last day there and went by the garden. It was still in shade, but the subtle light produced an interesting depth to the colors, and the mixed daises and these yellowish flowers produced interesting patterns when isolated at the long end of the zoom.

Canon SX20IS at 560mm equivalent. F5.7 @ 1/125 @ ISO 200. Landscape program and –2/3 EV exposure compensation for the white petals.

Still, a bit of Recovery in Lightroom for those same petals. Fill Light for the rest, and Blackpoint just slightly right. Added Clarity and a tiny bit of Vibrance. Sharpen narrow edges preset.

From Machias 2010.
