Confusion of Lily

The Daylilies in our yard continue to bloom in profusion. This cluster caught my eye in the afternoon sun. This is Maine, so our afternoon sun at 2PM is already fairly low in the sky, something I have only come to appreciate as I have spent more time traveling. Again, I backed away here to frame the cluster with a medium longish zoom and macro. Using Aperture Preferred kept enough depth of field for the shot.

Canon SX20IS at about 260mm equivalent. F5.6 @ 1/320th @ ISO 80. Aperture preferred. –2/3s EV exposure compensation for the bright sun highlights on the petals.

Some Recovery in Lightroom to subdue the highlights even more. Added Clarity and a touch of Vibrance. Blackpoint just right. Sharpen narrow edges preset.

From The Yard: Kennebunk ME.
