A Midsummer Bloom


Naked Ladies in the heat of summer. I'm actually surprised they are doing so well. Must have been the recent rains. Either way around it, these are gorgeous flowers and great for photographing. I had accidentally left the exposure compensation on at -1.00 f/stop. Lucky for me, I was shooting RAW and could easily adjust the exposure two full stops in either direction. I should've known better, it was obviously displayed on the info screen. But oh well, still learning this camera. I think that this shot benefits a lot from the digital cross-processing. Makes for a good blend of some crazy colors. Even with the DC-P, the colors of the flower stayed fairly natural and true-to-life.
