Flowers from my walk

The other day, my little sidekick and I went on a little “adventure” in the hay field next to my house. I of course took my camera and decided to do a little test. I wanted to see what happened to my images when I selected different meter settings. On my D90 I have the matrix metering, center weighted metering, and spot metering. The image I took using matrix ended up in the trash as it wasn’t sharp. The other two however, turned out very well. The only processing I did on the first two is to do a levels adjustment on them and then to sharpen them.

    I like the second to last shot. Good contrast.
