Honorable Mention - PhotoQuest 2009

Summer's End
Fredericksburg, Texas

I entered four photographs in the the PhotoQuest 2009 show and this one won an Honorable Mention! 

A little about the photo...

This was taken on location at Wildseed Farms (near Fredericksburg, Texas) in late summer, just before the harvest. Wildseed Farms is the largest working wildflower farm in the country. Acres and acres of flowers (and more) offer endless opportunities for nature photography. 

The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 5D camera with an EF 85mm /1.8 USM lens. Exposure: ISO 100, 1/500, f /5.0. The digital image was processed in Photoshop. I chose Kodak Endura Ultra Metallic paper to subtly highlight the brilliant golden yellows, deep greens, and rust color of the sunflower.

If you are in the Kerrville area please stop by the museum and visit the show. (Click here for more details.
