"Azure Beauty"

I have to say, I'm a sucker for this rich blue color. This image was made on a recent trip to San Diego while walking through Balboa Park. There was a water pool filled with flowers of many different colors. This flower was my favorite. The sun's strong backlighting further enhanced the striking color of the flower. The original image showed much more of the surroundings, but I liked this tight crop on this single plant. The dark background makes the subject really "pop". Camera specs: Canon 50D fitted with 18-200mm lens at 110mm, F8 at 1/250 second, ISO 400. Enjoy! -David

  2. I think your image needs more vibrance and saturaion.

  3. You sure like those saturation sliders! Great photo!

  4. A little delayed but THANK YOU for coming to Kansas City. You did a fabulous job and I learned a ton. Thank you!!! I hope you keep KC on the list of cities you return to. I hope you enjoyed the barbeque and hanging out in KC.
