Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment
Spring Has Sprung
Our next Picture This! assignment is "Spring Has Sprung"! The arrival of spring is always eagerly anticipated, perhaps this year more than most, so we wanted to celebrate with your images the beauty of spring and the color and light it brings. We're sure you'll be sending in lots of florals, but don't forget the other attributes of the season and the symbols it brings. This photo was made with a Canon EOS 30D with an exposure of f/4 at 1/250 sec using a Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 Macro HSM lens. The image was processed in Photoshop using Gaussian Blur and then through the Color Contrast Action in Nik's Color Efex Pro 3.0 plug-in.
