Early Wild Flowers, Pacific Coast, Davenport, CA
The temperatures are still on a cooler side in the San Francisco Bay area but signs of coming Spring are slowly but surely getting prominent. In this photo, wild flowers glow in the evening light as the clouds are painted in beautiful hues after sunset near Davenport, California.
I used my 16-35mm lens at 20mm with the lens stopped down to f/16 for DOF, focused somewhere in the middle of flower shrub, held the exposure in the sky with a 3 stop reverse split Singh-Ray neutral density filter and timed my exposure with a lull in the wind to create this image.
Post processing involved tweaking exposure, even out the light in the image, add contrast and sharpening to the raw file followed by conversion to JPEG.
