First Day of Spring

Christa shot these lovely blossoms with her Tamron 60mm f/2 lens. It was a beautiful first day of spring, and we spent about an hour driving around Magnolia looking for early signs of the season. Despite a slight chill in the air, the colors were definitely there to be found.

This is an amazing lens and she has a sure eye for a beautiful subject. I did a tilt-shift blur on this in Photoshop, but otherwise this required very little in the way of toning.

Once again I used tilt-shift on this image in Photoshop, but it's a lovely photo, again taken by Christa.

I shot this with my 35mm lens in a flower-filled vacant lot near downtown Magnolia, just at magic hour.

We found these on the campus of Southern Arkansas University. Taken with my 35mm lens, which doesn't produce images as spectacular as her 60mm macro, but does well enough.
