    tulip at Reader rock garden 105mmm f3.3 ISO 200 1/60

    I have been trying double exposure with flowers everyday. These are some bedding plants I bought for the front yard.

    1/50s, f2.8, ISO400. Lighten mode.
    Each image was about -1 EV
    Most of the image done in camera. Some clarity boost, exposure adjustments and cropping in LR.

    I went with the double exposure idea to try something different. I found out it’s super easy to do multiple exposures with my Ricoh GRiii. I can see how it would take a lot of experimenting to get the result you want!
    I tried for a jumble of layers and colours. This one is four or five exposures, some yellow calibrachoa (like little petunias), blue and yellow violas (blue butterfly) and a spirea bush that’s just starting to flower.
    ISO 800, 40 mm, f/7.1, 1/3200 sec

    My attempt at double exposure ISO 200 1/1000 f3 105mm

  6. Frankie says:

    This might just be two exposures, the yellow calibrachoa in a hanging basket again and chives in a planter on the ground.

    Went out early this morning, gorgeous lighting to catch this bee pollinating the poppies at the Silver Springs Botanical Gardens. Experimented with my 24-100 mm Zoom at different apertures for good depth of field. 1/3200 sec, f/4, ISO 1600. Post processed in Photoshop using exposure, texture, clarity sliders as well as AI to remove distractions from one corner. Sharpened with Topaz AI.

    Went to Reader Rock Gardens. This flower was all by itself in the sun. Shot with my 18-55 mm lens at F/4, 1/5400 sec, ISO 250

  12. Beth A Hetherington says:

    Stood over this iris and shot straight down into the flower. Shot with 18-55 mm lens at f/4, 1/480 sec, ISO 250

    Biked down to Prince’s Island and found some nice displays at the west end of the island.
    Taken with 300 mm zoom lens. ISO 100, f/13, 1/640.

    At the west access to the island. ISO 200, f/13, 1/200.

    Out on a birding hike on Radar Hill – East of Red Deer. Much to my delight, many wildflowers were in bloom. This has always been one of my favorites, Twisted vine Honeysuckle. The hummingbirds and bees love this one too. I took this with my 300 in bird flight mode. F5.6, 1/1600 sec, ISO 400.

    This invasive species looks fine to me.
    Dandy dandelions

  17. Bill Stilwell says:

    Another pretty invasive species. In this case it is the wild mustard from Europe.
