Tomatoes in the Rain
Since it was raining out this afternoon, I grabbed my Nikon with a Micro Nikkor close up lens, and headed out to the garden. It was late in the day and overcast and still sprinkling. These tomatoes were the first thing I came to, and I could see the water drops from a distance. So I moved in close (well, not close enough for Dean, but close enough for me... :-) This is my favorite shot. The color balance of the camera was set to "Auto" but you can see how the image is bluish green. When I saw this color, I reset the color balance, and got the color in the image below, which was close to what I saw with my eyes. But when I was editing the photographs, I decided I really liked the much cooler color balance in the first image. I guess because it seems more mysterious. What do you think?
