POTD #39 - Celtic Cross

A couple weeks ago, I went to the Carleen Bright Arboretum, here in Woodway to shoot some flowers. I ended up chasing butterflies and shooting this cross. Not an easy proposition in the 102°F/39°C heat.

I liked the way the shadow from the arbor fell at oblique angles on the body of the cross.


Tech Talk:
1/2500 sec; f/4.5; 75mm; ISO 200
In post-processing, I:
* Cloned out some distracting flowers
* Brought out the shadow detail
* Made some minor clarity and saturation adjustments.
