Dusky Pink

Uploaded: February 24, 2008


This was taken at an orchid festival in Washington, DC. I had to hand-hold my very heavy sigma macro/telephoto lens, due to a no tripod policy - my arms ached when I was done :-) Very short DOF due to desire for nice b/g bokeh and also necessity for fast shutter speed. Used cloudy setting to warm colors a tad, shot in raw and processed.
