Lens pen

This is one rose from an arraignment of flowers I bought my wife for Valentines day.  We were engaged on Valentines Day 31 years ago.  Maybe we should get married.  :-)  Ok... we were married later the same year in October.

I played with the image in Lightroom to create a different look.

It was shot with the 50mm lens with 3 close up filters attached.  f/1.8 @ 1/45 - ISO 500

Handy gadget tip:  Lens Pen:

If you do not own a lens pen, I suggest you purchace one.  It has a brush on the one end and a dry cleaning pad on the other side.  It does an amazing job cleaning your lens and brushing loose dirt from your lens or camera.  I use the 'original' lens pen but many manufacturers sell them now.  They can be purchased from Amazon for less than $10.  I recommend keeping one in each bag.  LensPEN Lens Cleaning System

Happy Anniversary on the engagement!! Beautiful rose! Thanks for the tip on the lens pen. Do you use an Expodisk or the like for adjusting your white balance?

I normally balance off something in the image. However, I am looking to use go to the expodisk or the whibal card.
