Rose Garden 6

Today from the Rose Garden:

REDS!

While so beautiful to look at, red is so difficult to photograph.

Why? you ask? (you’re so smart!)

Because red is such a hard color for cameras to decipher.

Red is at the top of the scale of wavelengths of visible light. Not only is it hard to photograph, it is one of the hardest colors to see. It borders on the line next to “Near-Infrared” and is almost beyond the range of human vision.

Our eyes “auto hdr” everything without us even knowing. They see color and tonal variation and dynamic range variation that a single sensor single shot cannot do.

Good thing all of that doesn’t keep me from taking the photograph!

…I do love a challenge!

Thanks for stopping by – have a great day!
