The Silent Observer's Digital Photography Pages

This is another semi-macro image of a ground cover plant in front of my work place.  This one is a variety of flowering veatch, also known as a sweet pea.  The blossoms were in constant motion from the wind while I was shooting, which caused some images to show frame interlace effects that lead me to think the image sensor in this camera, and its associated circuitry, was original built for television or video camera applications.

In this particular image I managed to catch a lull in the breeze -- trickier than it sounds because of the significant delay between pushing the "shutter" button and the actual capture while the camera tests for correct exposure.  Unlike the previous images in this album, this one has been slightly enhanced; the brightness and contrast were adjusted and I applied a mild sharpening filter.
