The two photos I’m sharing today are from a spring visit to Winkworth arboretum. These photos in particular need to be seen at a larger size, so do click on them. I was experimenting with the field of view that the 100mm macro lens provides, and saw a few opportunities making use of the path. I also made use of the shallow depth of field permitted by the lens to emphasise depth in the photos. Otherwise I felt that the compressed perspective would be confusing.

I took both photos handheld as single exposures. I used the lens at its widest aperture for the shallowest depth of field possible. Post processing was minimal, just a global curves layer to adjust contrast.

Click on the photos for a larger version; comments welcome, and of course feel free to share the link.
