Self Portrait at Longwood Gardens
My wife and I went to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square PA last Friday in an effort to see it with the fall colors before Hurricane Sandy wiped them all out. We took this portrait of me inside one of the tree houses on the property. I was backed up to a window that opened up to a dense grove of sycamore and oak trees with brilliant yellow colors. We used on-camera flash to fill and add a little sparkle to the eyes. I had to dodge my face and front of my fleece jacket to lighten it a bit, even with the fill flash. What do you think? Are the window slats distracting? I have another from a different location without the slats.
