p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Hydrangea Blowout!


Most of my Hydrangeas are in full bloom it seems, there might be a few that still have a ways to go. These were shot with 2 lenses...an SMC-A 50/1.7 and an SMC-M 100/4. Apertures are anywhere from f/1.7 to f/5.6. I have not had a chance to do much lately as my wife had her 4th miscarriage 2 weeks ago and she is still recovering physically and emotionally. I am going to print one or two of these out and then frame them as Hydrangeas are on of her favorites. I did not do much PP in CS6, just a little curvage and some contrast as well as a little bit of sharpening. The colors are as you see them....no saturation adjustment in CS6.

Thanks for the comments and thoughts. It has been tough..but it was obviously not meant to be. I was just hoping for a girl so my daughter could have a buddy. Sometimes her two brothers are just too much!

A good set.
There's something to like about each of these, but #2 has the best combination for me.

Thanks Douglas. I believe the only reason they are in full bloom is because the log cabin we are renting is surrounded by woods. Everything on the property seems to be weeks behind most other folks...but that's fine with me!

Wow, these are beautiful - it's hard to pick out a single one as each is so well done. - RC
