One can already feel the spring coming nearer – it is getting warmer. But you can also see it. The colors of spring are nearly back. You can have a glance at them… I took the pictures at the usual location…

I tried to shoot another macro but wanted to use a different light. A bunch of paper was used – you can see the edges and lines of the paper.
A white LED was the light source from the left and a laser pointer was used from the top and aimed between the paper.
In post processing I used the tonal contrast filter from Nik Color Efex. This enhanced the edges and enhanced the abstract effect of the picture.
I can imagine this quite good on a wall.
I found these guys when taking a walk on the weekend. as there is a lot of details in this picture I tried to shift the focus to front section. So I added brightness to the top left corner to enhance the flare and reduced the reflections of the roofs. The background was muted by the taking the saturation to 50%. I cranked the warmth of the leaves in the left lower corner up 20%, just enough to recreate what I saw that moment.
I always wanted to try the “indian summer” Color filter. Obviously one has to wait for autumn.
Here it is. I played with Nik Color Efex: Indian Summer and then some tonal contrast to emphasize the lines in the leaves.
I wanted to try a different self portrait.
This is another picture made with HDR Efex and Magic Lantern. The shots were older but HDR technique helped her to bring out the different greens.
I have been to a dinner with a pedalo and before we left (because the mosquitos also wanted to dine) I took this shot. A hot day’s end…
