Spring Buds

This was taken a few minutes ago in my back yard. It is harsh late evening lighting that I thought was interesting. I didn't do any significant editing to this one, just tweaked a bunch of settings.

Canon 350D (RAW)
1/500 sec at f/7.1, ISO 200

225mm (70.0-300.0mm f/4-5.6 IS Canon)

Adjustments made in Lightroom 2.0 Beta: Levels, Tone Curve, Clarity
Adjustments made in Photoshop: Noise Ninja, Output Sharpening, Duplicate background layer using the multiply blend, then lowered the opacity for a slight bump in contrast and color

Nice shot, good visual balance.

I always try and layout things when I design in thirds. Think about creating images with a dominant element that are complimented and balanced by multiple sub dominant elements.
