    The color on this is just stunning, Celeste…plus, the dreamy softness of the out of focus petals contrasted with the tack sharp center is just captivating…you always get the color so correct…I know you keep an eye on your histogram but do you change your white balance or use the auto white balance? The Wisteria are so pretty…

  • Thanks very much, Katherine! I use auto white balance much of the time because I’ve found it to be reliable on my camera. I know when it tends to be off (in shade) and will override it then. This one was in morning sun and shot with auto WB and no color adjustments in Adobe Camera RAW.

    I have to confess that I have never really looked at a wisteria flower before, but now I can see that I must when next I come across one! Lovely.

  • Thanks, Bette! I also never looked so closely at a single wisteria blossom before, but I was suddenly presented with lots of wisteria at eye level, and I simply had to explore the inner beauty.
