    First Images of 2013

    Took advantage of the day off on the 1st to see what kind of captures I could get to kick off the new year for myself. It was one of those days where I felt like I was 'in the zone' and I was having a ton of fun. Here are some of the ones I liked from the shoot (though there are more, I don't have time to PP them all yet).

    On the 1st one, I wish I would have slowed down and evaluated the scene more, because I don't like the cedar pieces that are behind the main sprig (at upper left and middle of frame). Should have removed those at the scene. I already cloned out several other distractions and small things, but these big ones will be a chore, should I decide to clone them. Then again, at some point I need to realize this is nature and it's part of the subject matter. What are your thoughts?

    The other 2 images are relatively tight crops, I wish I could have got in closer at the scene.

    Love them all 3, but the last is veeery beautiful.
    The second I'm not sure what it is, looks like a pastry with candy sugar on it.

    Mike, thanks for the comments. The leaf with ice crystals in image 2 was a tough shot to get...apparently just being in the near vicinity of the leaf was enough for the ice crystals to start melting from my body heat. I could literally see the crystals dissolving one by one as I frantically snapped the shots away, LOL.
