THE HARDY SURVIVOR by Charissa Lansing

September 2023 - THE HARDY SURVIVOR

About the Image(s)

I enjoy the wonderful vivid pop of color from groups of hardy geraniums that grow in my garden. Despite my attention to watering, the extreme heat last week and lack of rain were a challenge. I was glad to see this surviving bloom among a cluster of dried out flowers and the promise of new buds.

Specs: Shot on a tripod with a 2.8 100 mm Canon macro lens (set to: f/8, 1/80 sed, ISO 200).
Thank you for any suggestions.

Great composition and lovely flower. My only suggestion is to add some clarity to the flower as it is a little soft.   Posted: 09/15/2023 13:18:21

Excellent photo. I would make the image a little shaper in post , little bright and if possible blur the bokeh a tad little more. Then again these are my personal taste. The photo as such is very good.   Posted: 09/23/2023 09:35:17
