General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
While walking Evelyn to childcare, we spotted these small mushrooms growing in the grass. There were more further on as well.
The camera & lens:Camera: Sony RX100 II
Lens: Sony RX100M2 fixed lens 10.4-37.1mm f/1.8-4.9 (28-105mm equivalent) @ 10.4mm
Exposure: 1/160" @ f/2.8, ISO 160 (0/10)
Starting point - Not an inspired composition but I knew this was the quickest shot I could get while not taking my attention away from the small person I was in charge of.
After crop and rotate. I chose a layout that created a meandering line, exiting at the top right of the screen.
I don't use curves often in Lightroom 5, as the basic panel does a good enough job. However I felt like using them today; this is a gentle "S" curve that increases contrast - introduces some nice dark areas, and tops off the peak of the light areas.
