August 2nd, 2011 – Dahlias

My subject yesterday morning was Hummingbirds, ideally Hummingbirds on pretty flowers. The Hummers were not playing nice and the light was too harsh for floral macro images so  a few bracketed exposures of these Dahlias with the big glass was the order of the day. I opted for an “in your face”  processing style just  for a change of pace.

Thanks for stopping by,
