>Day 030 – 01302011


The rains have returned to our part of the world and I am very excited about that because tomorrow I will be able to go out to hunt for mushrooms and capture them with my camera.

The spiderweb in the photo above has almost a perfect spiral starting at its center before it breaks off.

I took this shot with the sun in front of me and at a 45 degree angle. The original raw file showed both magenta and green halos around the strong light points, which distracted the viewer’s attention from the beauty of the dew drops. Alas, I wasn’t able to discard the unwanted colors using any of the software I own. This is why I ended up converting the original raw file to grayscale.

Technical data: f/5.6, 1/320th sec, ISO 100.
