Unseasonable weather continues, but the yellow crocus is not impressed. It is keeping things to itself however. Only the absolute minimum opening is present. I caught this crocus in the setting sun. The sun has shone from time to time this week, though it tended to scoot behind the clouds when I got my camera out. Tonight I finally caught up with it–with minutes to spare. One advantage of the cold weather is that it has extended the blooming of the crocuses.
This image was taken with a Nikon D90. I used the Nikon 18-55mm AF-S VR. It focuses closely and is sharp. I have cropped this image fairly heavily. It still looks good even at 800 ISO, at least at this image size. In Aperture, I worked to get some detail back into the highlighted area. The biggest help was to reduce the exposure slightly, then use the Levels tool to rebalance the tones.
