I thought I would start my blog by posting a Spring image, to go with the current season. This photograph was shot on a trip to Germany in 2007, with my Nikon D70 and the 24- 70 mm kit lens that came with the camera. At the time I had just started shooting with a digital camera and shot in jpg because I did not know how to edit images in Photoshop. We had been speeding down the Autobahn for several days and I finally begged our friend to pull over so I could photograph the incredible fields of yellow flowers. He just happened to stop near these 4 trees, near the village of Bamberg. The rapeseed flowers are used for cooking oil and as a biofuel in Germany and the fields are everywhere. I shot this handheld at 200 ISO, f22 at 1/100, in auto white balance. Very little post processing was done on this image: I removed some dust spots in the sky and did 2 levels adjustment layers to get more detail in the trees and the sky.
