A Rose for Theen

February 14, 2005

OK, so it's Valentine's Day — but it's allowed — I post flower macros anyway, and this one has water drops too, so that's good, right?

This one was looking like this, in the front garden, right after a rain-shower, earlier this week.

Update: The second shot shows Theen's Valentine's Day reply to me — heart-shaped fork-biscuits.

Details: 1 — Nikon 105mm 1:2.8 macro, ~f/11, 1/200s, ISO 200, +1.15 stops exposure compensation during raw conversion. 2 — Nikon 50mm 1:1.8D, f/4, 1/50s, ISO 800, +0.7 stops compensation, levels, curves, a masked hue/saturation to subdue the green plate.
