Sensor: Canon 6D
Location: Chicago Botanical Gardens, IL USA
We went to the Botanical Gardens in Chicago for a few hours before my flight back to SFO. It was a hazy July day which forced me to take other types of pictures than ones that I usually take. The skies were completely overcast, which meant no dramatic or interesting landscapes. I looked for scenes that allowed me to completely eliminate the sky and started looking to shoot things near my feet. For the picture above, I used a zoom lens in the photo above to frame the scene appropriately and used a polarizer to cut out the reflections on the water and give good saturated colors to the flowers and lily pads.
How the photo was taken: 100mm, f/4, 1/200 sec, 100 ISO, c-pol filter
