Have a Heart

A little flower experiment for today’s post.  I found these bleeding hearts as the sun was about to go down and wanted to grab a spotlight shot.  It was challenging to find the right settings to avoid silhouetting the flowers against the setting sun while also having a fast enough shutter speed to keep things sharp.  So although it’s a little soft, and has quite a bit of chromatic aberration, I still felt compelled to post it.  I’m now waiting for another similar evening to try again now that I learned a few things with this image.
