Brisbane Rd, Bundamba
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

These thistles caught the morning light. I wasn't sure about the right exposure, so bracketed the shots.

Bags "The Flarey Thistles" as a band name.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS @ 80mm
Exposure: 1/250" @ f/9.0, ISO 400 (Av, +1 EV)

Post processing:

Lightroom 4 - Very mild processing here.

  1. Curves: Lights +25, darks -25

The wash-up:

I didn't plan this out at all, and I'm happy with it. The other flare I was going for was in the afternoon, but I don't get home early enough in the winter to do this.
