Amaryllis Contre Jour

Amaryllis Contre Jour

Photo Information
This is one of last year's amaryllis that this year has decided to flower a couple of months earlier than expected.

It stands on an east facing window sill in front of a net curtain and is shot here against the rising sun on an October day in an attempt to create a contre jour themed image.

Pentax K-3 with a DA35 limited Macro.
1/60sec, F5.6, ISO200 & -1 exposure compensation.
Handheld.

Shot raw, processed in LR5 with some final tinkering in PSE10.
