Genki Spark & Teary Rose Leaf

Despite rainy and lousy weather I made my way over to the Brookline Minot Rose garden yesterday. The surrounding park was recently renovated and there is a re-opening celebration and rose stroll planned for today. Looking outside my window right now it appears that the celebration will be postponed to the rain date of 26 June 2011. The celebration is organized by the The Friends of the Minot Rose garden who do such fantastic work maintaining the garden; they cannot be thanked enough!

When I decided to make my way over to the Minot Rose garden I thought I would have the garden all to myself because of the rain; quickly I was proven wrong. Turns out that not only a macro photographer like me likes the garden on a rainy morning. Happy Sunday!




  1. These are just lovely. The leaf image is processed beautifully, Juergen!

  2. Thanks for commenting on my Genki Spark and Teary Rose Leaf Roni. Since I don't have a polarizer for my close up lens I underexposed by 1 1/3 stop to saturate the colors and to get rid of the highlights on the leaf. In addition it produced a darker background as well. During post processing I made minor contrast and lighting adjustments before sharpening the image ... glad you like it!
