Garden Reflection Photo Contest Finalist

Garden Reflection
A reflection in the gazing ball cought my eye last August and I captured it with my Canon 10D. I had my 28-80 USM macro zoom set at f5.6 at a shutter speed of 180th second. The ISO was set at 800 because I had been trying to catch a bumblebee in flight. The gazing ball itself was red which caused a red cast throught the image. I changed the hue slightly to enhance the other colors and darkened it slightly to give a little more depth. This was done using Adobe Elements then stored as a jpeg.

    I wanted to clarify that this image was shot with my Canon 10D. I also own the Fuji Finepix and have both listed on this website I guess I didn't change it from the last time. Dan
