03 AUG 06

The Informal Transglobal Thursday Challenge as developed by Lee and Bev was to shoot and post
No PS, except to resize

It turned out to be a lot harder than I thought

Right as I walked out of work I saw this cleome flower that is trying to survive the heat wave
I held the camera real close, in macro mode . . and the lens immediately fogged up

After being in A/C all day, the 101 F heat created condensation
I rather liked the effect

Other Straight Out Of The Camera shots

Canon PowerShot S2 IS
1/200s f/4.0 at 6.0mm full exif

other sizes: small medium original auto

Though it's not official...
...I've been doing no PS for weeks.
My computer decided for me.
: )

Lovely selection to choose from! Chris

I actually dig the fog effect! Very nicely done. I think you should remember that trick for future efforts as it has paid off well here.
Karthik Raja04-Aug-2006 12:57
Not only an interesting picture, but interesting plant too. Are these leaves that are curled up so?
Guest 04-Aug-2006 09:42
Beautiful shot!!! The fog makes the dreamy effect!!!
Jola Dziubinska04-Aug-2006 09:11
This is sooo pretty! Nicely done.
Dominic Kite04-Aug-2006 09:10
I think its the fogging that makes the shot, looks like the old vasaline on the lens/softfocus trick!
Johnny JAG04-Aug-2006 07:14
Great effect, all I need now is some warm weather......oh and air conditioning.
Lee Rudd04-Aug-2006 06:37

Interesting effect, it adds mood!
Coleen Perilloux Landry04-Aug-2006 02:11
Very pretty. In fact, it looks like candles on a cake. I like the misty effect.
Herb 04-Aug-2006 02:06
Nice image
royalld04-Aug-2006 02:01

Jessica McCollum04-Aug-2006 01:42
Definately a neat effect...makes it look so soft! Great shot!
Sheila04-Aug-2006 01:09
Beautiful shot, Pete. Nice composition. I do like the misty effect. The old photographers used to blow on their lenses to get this effect!
Faye White04-Aug-2006 01:09
I think the fog worked! gives it a delicate look without using PS! :)

This is quite the folded petals. My hat is off to you..being that I am addicted to photoshop I could not make it through without doing something.
