In support of the Woman’s March on Washington, over 7,500 people participated in the Women’s March on Bellingham, Wash. Counts were unclear as the Bellingham police said the crowd is the largest they have ever seen for any kind of march, protest, or demonstration.
While editing wedding photos from Sandy and Ellen’s ceremony, I am a bit stuck on which one of these wedding rings I like better. Both have their qualities, but I’d like some comments about which you like better.
The difficult part was to get the rings to show the colors. They had to be almost perfectly face on for the camera to capture the colors in the stones. Most did not come out, but these two work really well.
A: Among the Purple –
The only flaw I find with the above photo is that the pair of rings sort of resemble sunglasses. But other than that, I think it works nicely.
For the ring photos, I used my Nikkor 55mm f.2.8 Macro on my Nikon D300s with the white balance set on manual to Daylight, ISO of 400 as it was cloudy, the shutter at 1/250th, and the lens aperture at f/8 to add a little depth of field.
B: In the Lily –
What I like about this image is that the flower sort of resembles a heart. When presented with this opportunity again, I think I’ll unfold the flower a touch to get a more “heat-shaped” feel to it.
