Under Ravenel

Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.
Not a normal crop for me when I take flora photos.  I think you know by now that I like the "up in it" G. O'Keefe style.  Not this time.  The very shallow DOF took the  background and faded it into a color field only.  This makes the flower POP out and into your face.  This was at the new Mount Pleasant park area under the Ravenel Bridge in Charleston.  There is a fishing pier, children's playground, walking trails across the bridge (2.5 miles?) and a war memorial.  It was a beautiful place to spend some time.


    love it!

    If you are ever in Pittsburgh be sure to visit Phipps conservatory! Loaded with photo ops.

    What equipment do you use?
    GOOD STUFF! Keep it coming

  2. I love flowers.....beautiful shot!

  3. Thank you Thank you.

    I am field testing a new Nikon D3000 with a 18-55 and a 55-200 lens. (since there is a digital crop factor of 1.5 the effective range is 26-110 and 110-300 respectively)

    I'll rip off 200 photos at a place like Phipps- I GO CRAZY IN BOTANICAL HOUSES. Let's make a deal- I get Joel to perform in Pittsburgh... and you take me to Phipps. DEAL?
