One I’d taken a while ago, but at that time I’d only just started using my new Canon DSLR & knew next to nothing about post-processing. I felt therefore … I should revisit this image, which was until today … in my folder ready for deletion. I’m actually rather glad I kept this one.

Processing was actually fairly minimal; other than curves, highs n lows, contrast, very minor sharpening, and of course conversion from RAW to JPEG etc et al, per se. Almost all Canon DPP plus Adobe PSE9 and of course a wee shake of SPE. The BG is just trees n plants in my garden.

Taken in my garden – as are almost all images here on my blog unless otherwise stated. 🙂 Lens was the Sigma 150-500 at f5.6 with manual settings.
