Pretty Urban Rainbow

It’s a pretty urban rainbow, spotted as we arrived home, and captured on my trusty Samsung Note 4 mobile phone.
 
Actually the light was pushing the phone to the limit. A bit of processing in Snapseed on the phone helped, though it’s still much noisier than I would have liked. It’s actually a good example of a picture that looks good on the mobile phone but not so good on the computer screen. Oh well – should have carried a camera! At least I got the shot!

Interesting Light in the Rosebuds

Photography is about getting the light right. The right colour and the right balance.

Now there’s something about this picture that I just like, though I am not sure why. I think it is the way the light has highlighted the rosebud and a couple of leaves, without a huge and unmanageable contrast.

No fancy processing here, just levels and crop. Shot with a 70-300 zoom in macro mode.
