SteemitPhotoChallenge Entry: Wild Honeysuckle

in steemitphotochallenge •  3 years ago  (edited)

I rarely take photos of flowers in gardens, but let's see how my photos of native wild flowers do in the competition:

Olympus XZ-1, 112mm, ISO400, f8, 1/200s

This is the native, wild variety of honeysuckle (Lonicera) in The Netherlands.

I don't normally shoot the Olympus XZ-1 at over ISO200, as its sensor tends to smear a bit at higher ISOs, even with little or no noise reduction, resulting in photos that look like watercolour paintings. In this case, however, I decided to push it to ISO400, hoping for a subtle effect that would make the photo look like an old-school botanical drawing. I think I pulled it off.

concentrated color, I like it.

I think you pulled it off well. Very lovely flower. I like the muted colors. Your Olympus sure has great clarity. Good luck.
