Yesterday was the first day of the Spring Flower Show at the Lincoln Park Conservatory in Chicago so off I went to take some photographs. The only problem was the condensation on my lenses caused by going from the cold outside into the heat and the humidity inside!!

This fence was in the middle of a pond inside the Conservatory.

  1. This is a great shot. I love the angle and the water behind the fence adds a softness to the image.

  2. I like the reflections in the water and the color they bring to the shot – it sets off the main subject nicely!

  3. I really like this, Mary Lou. The tones are so pretty and the background blur is too. The unusual tilt to the wrought ironwork adds a bit of tension. Nice find!

    If you shot through condensation it sure doesn’t show Mary Lou! Nice composition of lines and curls in the fence with the arc of the pond border in back. Nice colors and texture in the image too!!

    This is another beautiful shot. The angle is so unique – I never would have thought of that, but it makes this shot so beautiful.

  6. It is reverse in Darwin – leave an airconditioned Hotel and go out into high humidity air and you have to wait at least ten minutes for the lens to acclimatize. Love the angle of the fence with it’s scrollwork.

  7. Neat fence and good composition. I find putting the lens cap back on before I go from warm to cold helps, but I’m lucky in that my lens cap is actually tethered to my camera, so it’s easy.

  8. I like that a lot, something very attrative about the shape and curls of the fence and then the colors in the back ground. Very nice.

    I have that problem at the zoo in the desert and butterfly house….I wish I knew how to stop it!

    No signs of condensation in this image – great angle you shot that at and love that water background -very cool shot!
