2005-11-12 - Sun Shower

A late afternoon sun shower provided me with a brief opportunity for some interesting photos. Fortunately, I had some willing subjects standing by...

While I'm quite happy with this photo, I'm a little unsure about the colour. The original was seriously lacking contrast and colour due to lens flare, which the 80-200 F/2.8 is quite prone to. It doesn't help that I have no hood for the lens. Overall, I like the warmth of the scene but the other colours seem a bit too surreal. Thoughts?

Ela i really love this shot! It does look a bit surreal (due to the "snow" and the lighting) but that's what makes it even more interesting and special...I also really like the background here...

Stephen Cameron Thanks Ela :-) It's a magic time of day for photos. I guess the part that seems most unnatural to me is the grass in the foreground - I think it is too yellow. Maybe that's because I saw the original, dull version first and the difference is so dramatic.
