Tonight when reviewing the photos from the day, I came across two that seemed more like paintings than photographs. The combination of the light, colors, focal length, lens characteristics all combined to push me in another direction in post-production.
I have not shot many hummingbirds this year, despite many of them being around - just would rather watch and listen to them than take photos. But this Rufous H'bird presented himself quite nicely so I was lured into taking his picture. Glad I did.
The hibiscus flowers are changing color over time - they used to bloom quite vividly orange and now are much more melon like and cooler.
