Give Me Your Best Shot & You Capture-Color

I’ve been having a lot of fun with my camera lately!

I’ve even committed myself to a 365 project, where you take a picture a day for a year.

You can see my Flickr sets here.

We had some rain earlier this week, so Sunshine and I took the umbrella out for a shoot when the rain stopped.

This was my favorite shot.

Rainy day
Camera: Nikon D40
Lens: Nikkor 55-200mm VR
Exposure: 1/60
Aperture: f4.5
ISO: 200

I love…

The colors in the umbrella.

Her favorite skinny jeans.

Her favorite pair of Converse.

The wet street.

The rips in her jeans.

    Vibrant! just Vibrant! :)

    There is also almost an emotion with it — like she is giggling behind that umbrella!

    Beautiful shot…you need to save your best ones (like this one) and start a photo wall in place of one of the "Country" spots in your Living room. You are a good photographer…what I wouldn't do for a camera like yours!! :)

    So fun! Love that you added the aperture and information. What a fun project! I love the rips in her jeans and the way she is standing. Just shouts youth and fun! Great job.
