My Birthday Cake
Posted By: LeDave, 10-01-2009, 08:05 PM

Hey you guys! Today is my birthday and I turned twenty! Out of the teen ages now.

Taken with my DA 35mm Macro Limited. This is my very first time really using this lens and I am very surprised by the sharpness and color it generated.

No post processing, straight out of DNG and converted to JPEG with Adobe PS CS4. F/2.8, ISO 800, 1/500s

Cropped and Post processed version. Can't really tell much of a difference, but I reduced the noise using noise ninja and unsharp masked it a bit. Then messed around with shadow/highlights.

Happy B-Day! I hope the wax came off the cake easily. I looked like they were buring down a bit there.

Happy Birthday - these shots are very well done. That 35'll do the job when you need it to.
