Up Close With Veronica

It was a lovely day so I ventured into the garden with my camera to see what would inspire me. The Veronica on my rockery was just starting to come into flower so I thought I would try for a close up.

I took this using my 18-55mm kit lens at 55mm using aperture priority with f7.1 and ISO 200.  I was within six inches of this beautiful little flower when I took the shot. I'm really happy with the exposure and I haven't needed to retouch it at all. The original uncropped image is below.

Sunset Over Monyash

Hello and welcome to my first post on the blog. Having got into photography at the beginning of last year I now own a Nikon Coolpix P510 and a Nikon D5200. Currently living in the Peak District I have plenty of beautiful places to photograph. I hope you like my contributions.

I took this picture on a lovely April evening using a 55-300mm lens and the camera on full auto mode (yes I know but I only had about twenty minutes of light left and didn't have time to find the correct exposure settings).

The top picture has been retouched to bring out the colours with the original below.
