Backyard beauty (AKA lots of flowers!)
Posted By: CJCram, 05-19-2008, 02:11 PM

These are a few of my favourites that I shot this Victoria long weekend in my backyard. The white flowers are either from our plum or pear trees. The "regular" ones were taken with a Sigma 17-70, the macros with a 50mm f2 and extension tubes, and the funky dandelion one with a Lensbaby 2.0. I did some post processing in Picnik just to experiment, and I like the way they turned out! Any comments or criticism is welcome

Damn Brit

I really like the last one, the bokeh on the left looks like some kind of explosion happening.
