Prescott Park Floral

I skipped down to Prescott Park today. I'd intended to hit Strawbery Banke, but there was nothing in the way of parking and I didn't have the time to walk to the house I wanted to shoot from the park.

While I was futzing around with the monopod and camera, this guy came up to me and asked me about my "stick". He said he really liked "electric cameras because of the light". He was really into those "electric cameras" and really wanted to get a "stick like mine". I tried to explain that it was called a monopod, he rambled on about "electric cameras" and I realized I could keep the technical details out of the conversation.

It was pretty windy and very bright. LR2 to the rescue on the brightness. I used the gradient filter, from the bottom up (opposite what one would expect to do) and that seemed to bring the flowers back.

I broke down and ordered the lensbabies 3G this weekend, I can't help but imagine what today's shoot would have been like with that attached to the front of my "electric camera".
