The Silent Observer's Digital Photography Pages
The neighbor's rhododendrons have been blooming the last couple days,
and I wanted to capture the color contrast before they were all gone (in
about a week). When I shot this, it was starting to get windy, as
well as being overcast and the sun very low in the west; as a result, I
got some movement interlacing and had to use a deinterlace filter, as well
as a moderate sharpening filter, brightness and contrast adjustment, and
some manipulation of the bright and dark ends of the light curve.
Assuming the weather lets up, I may try to get another, tighter shot of
a few of the blossoms before they're all gone.
