Weekly Photo Challenge: Twisted

Sometimes I can’t help but wondering, Mother Nature what are you thinking? because this seems a bit twisted:

ISO 25 4.15mm f/2.2 1/140sec

ISO 25 4.15mm f/2.2 1/110sec

These photos were taken in the greenhouse that is part of the gardens at the Down House which was the home of Charles Darwin. If you go for a visit make sure to pick up an audio guide, it is fascinating. Β As for the photos, they were taken with my iPhone. Β I had brought along my Canon 50D with a wide angle lens, so while that was great for overall shots of the site and garden, I left the detail work to my iPhone. Shots like the ones above are something that I think my iPhone handles well.

I did edit these shots in Lightroom so the originals are below for sake of comparison:

I’ve cropped both, as well as done overall adjustments to the highlights and vibrancy. I also sharpened both.

So do you like the edits? Do you find these plants a bit creepy? I do honestly. Β Feel free to leave a comment below.

  1. Love the edits, Amy. You know how to use your iPhone well and it does capture detail. I find that when the lighting’s great, a lot of detail can come out through photos taken with your phone. I don’t find the plants creepy…maybe prickly and I don’t want to touch them πŸ™‚

    Wow, Charles Darwin’s place. It must have been a pleasure to visit πŸ™‚


  2. I love the light and clarity in your first image, Amy, and the colors and detail of the “hair” in the second. They are fascinating plants and creepy if you are a fly! πŸ™‚
