Wildflowers in Big Sur

Posted by
Barbara Kile (Ft. Worth, United States) on 5 September 2011 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Taking a flower image in its natural environment is unusual for me, but I was on a trail and saw these little ones. I had my 80-200 mm, f/2.8 lens on my camera along with a 500D diopter close up lens on the front of the lens, so went with a wide open shallow depth of field shot.

I also processed this image with SnapArt3 and liked that result, but decided to post the 'straight' shot. :)

NIKON D300 1/320 second F/2.8 ISO 400 262 mm (35mm equiv.)

I love these little flowers! We call them "Sticky Monkey" out here...I have no idea what the real name is, but you have captured their happy personalities!
