wherein i sound like i actually speak camera-ese

yesterday afternoon
we 
took a walk
 in 
riverside park
 took along the big camera

 played with some settings
on the D7000

 there's a 
'scene mode
setting
on the mode dial'

you
 rotate
 the
 'mode dial'
then
rotate
 the 
'main command dial' 
 until
 the
 'desired' 
scene is displayed in the monitor
(i had to look up all the camera jargon cause calling things little screen, wheel thingie wasnt sounding very learned ha!)

 i chose
 close up

 took this shot



 after
 i downloaded it
 i played a bit 
with
 topaz labs new restyle plugin

applied 
 'nature's road home'
 under 
the 'nature' options

 i kinda like it

  1. Beautiful phlox! (by the way, I completely understand little dial thingy; it's the one right beside the little pop up flashy thingy. What's wrong with that? ) :)

  8. It's beautiful! I often find the scene settings are really handy. Love the way you've processed it, too.
