About the Image(s)

Taken on a Club photoshoot at nearby Chanticleer, an outdoor Greater Philadelphia botanical garden, back in spring. Walking down a trail with my Nikon D750 camera plus Tamron SP 90mm macro lens, I came across a fir tree retaining water drops from a recent rainstorm. In a test of my camera’s ability to shoot at very high ISO, I shot handheld at 1/250 sec, f/51, and ISO 16000. This gave a sharp image but with definite noise. In Photoshop, I adjusted exposure, increased clarity and vibrance, and reduced noise.
