Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden - Orange

Posted by Bruce (Tacoma, United States) on 25 November 2015 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

I just photographed todays and Fridays photo of what I believe are both Labrador Tea Rhododendron flowers - but two different shades of them. Other then boosting the color - these are from the camera.

I had taken these photos at the Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden and figured it would be a nice warm photo. OK - it was in the greenhouse at the garden but still at the garden.

I appreciate all the comments – I find them very encouraging. My primary photography is flowers and landscapes along with my grandkids.

Most of my photos are, “as they were taken.” I do work with lighting or darkening them in many cases but use very little “photo-shopping” If I do adjust them – I try to mention it.

My goal is to I try to keep my photography as photography and not turn it into art. While I do love the retouched photos, I personally think they become art and not photography – just my opinion.
