More Spring Blooms

Thought I would share some other spring blooms I have tried to capture around the city

The shrub in front of my house. This was actually back in February. it tends to bloom and rebloom throughout the year:

SS:1/2000
Aperture:f/2.5
ISO:n/a (I had some weird setting turned off back then that didn't allow me to adjust the ISO)
Focal Length:50mm (75mm in 35mm)

SOOC, no editing

First blooms in my little front garden. This is from March:
SS:1/320
Aperture:f/2.5
ISO:n/a (still affected by weird setting)
Focal Length:50mm (75mm in 35mm)

 auto white balance run in Gimp

And the first blooms in my back garden, from April:


SS:1/80
Aperture:f/5.6
ISO:200
Focal Length:105mm (157mm in 35mm)
brightened and increased contrast using curves, ran a slight unsharp mask at .50 in GIMP

Some beautiful tulips in a nearby park

SS:1/125
Aperture:f/5.6
ISO:200
Focal Length:105mm (157mm in 35mm)
brightened colours and increased contrast using curves, ran an unsharp mask at .50
