Weekly Photo Challenge: Shine ( Through Trees and Leaves 7 )

This week’s photo challenge is Shine.

I like photographing against the light; in particular I like photographing trees and leaves against in coming light.

If the camera is set as Automatic, this usually poses a problem as the light sensor will sense there is strong light and the aperture will automatically reduce, giving a picture which is too dark.dsc_0285

I intend to upload a series of photos which has been shot against the light.

Here is a photo taken in a Chinese garden in Zhangjiajie, a companion photo to the earlier one. See the light that falls on the bamboo leaves; lovely?

Please enjoy!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Harmony ( Flowers)


Peach blossoms and plum blossoms are my favorite flowers.

I have travelled to other countries just for the sake of seeing them in their full bloom.1531607_838880886129053_863925702_n

Here are two photos taken in Japan; one with a light background and the other with a dark background, but both are good examples of harmony.

The light one illustrates how this flower can be in harmony with the bamboo. It stands out but in harmony with the background.11146270_1079189038764902_6511822754414756882_n

The dark one shows how this flower can be in harmony with the flowing stream and the background.

Both photos were taken by my classmate YM Chan.

Please enjoy.
