Continuing the weekly challenges for the Brighton Photographers Group on Facebook. The rules are simple, one image per theme (unless otherwise stated) and ideally shot the same week as the theme (ie no submitting from archives).
Another one from the garden! A recently trimmed forsythia hedge had a few unruly sprigs defiantly reaching skywards. I framed one against the lawn with a long focal length to ensure the background was completely out of focus and unobtrusive. The black and white conversion allows the texture on the leaves to be seen clearly.
Shot on digital SLR with a 28-300mm lens.
Processed and converted to black & white in Lightroom Classic.
100mm | 1/1000 sec | f/5.3 | ISO 200
