Thank you all so much for your sweet comments on my last post! It turns out that I had a sinus infection, which might explain why I've felt so wiped out for the last couple of months. I'm on an antibiotic, so I'm starting to feel more like myself, just in time for my favorite season!!!
50mm 1.8 lens, 1/25, f/3.5, ISO 100
Portland didn't get the memo about Spring until March 23 and it was a beautiful day! On Friday and Saturday I went out walking and took lots of pictures of the Pink Trees, of course :-) Not all the varieties of Pink Trees are blooming yet, but in a couple of weeks my little neighborhood should be quite spectacular!
I shot this with my Nikon D3100, which I am having a great deal of difficulty learning to use. I understand the Exposure Triangle, but for some reason I am not able to get consistent results. I am fairly happy with the way this turned out and made very few edits, all in Adobe Camera Raw.
I'll just keep practicing and hope that I eventually get that hang of it. But maybe I'll just sell my Nikon and buy an iPhone :-)
