Field of Queen Anne’s Lace

It’s hard for me to pass a field of Queen Anne’s lace without little exploration. I chose frames full of flowers to capture just the pattern and also focused on individual flowers and scenes. Once again I had the settings on my camera accidentally set for very low light, which made all my photos of this particular misty evening and sunset very overexposed. I did go back when I realized and retook the ones I could get, but I liked some of the overexposed photos and worked with them in Photoshop to draw out different levels of detail and color.

I’ll often manipulate properly exposed photos into these ranges intentionally for a design effect, so even though I’d intended these as those properly exposed images I’m happy with the accident.
