First Daylilies of 2010

I was out early this morning for this shot of our first Daylily blooms. They actually came out yesterday, but I missed them. This is a fairly unique color for Daylily, and it is on the warmer side of the house so it often blooms first.

Canon SX20IS at 28mm and Super-macro. F2.8 @ 1/30th @ ISO 80. Programmed auto.

Blackpoint just slightly right in Lightroom 3. Added Clarity and a bit of Variance. Sharpen narrow edges preset. Cropped slightly on the right for composition.

From The Yard: Kennebunk ME.

And, for the fun of it, here is a similar shot taken with my new iPhone 4. You can see it on my flickr site by clicking the image. Not bad at all for a phone! Level adjustments and sharpening in PhotoGene on the iPhone.
