In the garden: Flowers I cannot seem to render
Near frost but no frost seems to be the motto for this month -- very late!!!! -- and we still have flowers. These Bachelor Buttons:
The idea is the crisp, jewel-like flower against the DeKooning-like swirls of decaying, mildewed Black-Eyed Susans. But for some reason, those tiny white blossoms at mid-right get blown out!
Again, amazingly, we have forsythia blooming on October 31. But the yellow blossoms are blown out, just like the white ones above.
Since the lens won't change, perhaps I need to be more clever about the light conditions?
