End of Summer Meadow

HOYA-Last Meadow(1)A09A2163

Since, the time of growth and flowering has more or less finished.

= for that flower patch it was not an exception.   After some strong 

wind and the rain, now the meadow is in their closing stage.

On the other hand, now I got proper front lens for that Homemade

two elements Lens thanks to the kind assistance of HOYA Optics.

(Original lens came from my broken specs and -5 Diopter strength.  

Now I got  -3 and -6 for further experiment. (I would have  -3, -6, -9 to test !)

Unlike 25 year old specs lens, brand new lens is much clearer = less fuzziness.

To compensates clearer image, I increased the “F-Aperture” somewhat

one-stop (6 mm to 10 mm) = it affected the depth of field as well.   😦

Still, they looks more or less the same  😀

Only (used to be) the meadow looks different.  After a Riot, there

would be inevitable dead bodies and the dried-up carcasses and sticks.

That’s what we human saw the situation though,  for the flowers 

themselves,  looks like a dried-up carcass is their very seed pod etc

= their proof of success in this summer’s operation.

Don’t make up a drama,  it is just another phase of one cycle.

I’m not sure whether they will come back next season. —– Just wait and see.

Anyhow, I was very much fired-up by their chaos.  

(And created lords of looks more or less the same picture.  😀  😀  )

Still it was a fun !

    These are just stunning. Wonderful colours, compositions and a lovely balance of focus and softness.

        Thank you though, B/W was a joke —– need to start from the beginning as B/W session.
        Flower photo relying on their color. B/W need to have more texture or shape.

      Thank you Karen. The funniest thing was, the lens has no focus. Iris was a hole on black tape.
      Image wasn’t even PSed = just increased Brightness and Shadow (hence, the contrast in Brightness and
      the Color were exaggerated)

    These are all strikingly lovely, but I find the black and whites to be exceptional!

      Thank you Elena.
      B/W photo need different eyes —– I should have dedicated shooting session.
