Holiday Weekend

It is labor day weekend so I thought that I would share a few pictures taken today. The first picture highlights depth of field. You may have to click on the picture to see it in a larger mode.
What you see is that the unopened flower in the lower left corner is slightly blurred. As you move up into the picture the unopened flower in the middle right has a soft focus. Now look at the unopened flower in the upper left corner and see a perfectly sharpen image.
This picture was taken with the following settings in Aperture Mode: A:f2.8 / S:100 at focal length 5.1. If you wanted uniform sharpness you would have to raise the aperture settings to a higher number.

In this picture you see a close up of some lovely flowers that have been slightly softened in Adobe Photo Shop Elements. I used the dry bush filter and the effect is lovely and in keeping with the filtered light.

This picture is of a large tree blossom and a bee looking for a meal. Again I used Adobe Photo Shop Elements to process the image. I adjusted the contrast to highlight the subtle color changes is the leaves.
I hope that you all have a nice holiday and take a lot of pictures!
