Shoot & Edit: Week 12-Green SOOC

So I am late in joining this challenge, but it is going on all year and I'm super excited about it!

This weeks' theme is "Green". Here is my SOOC shot:
SOOC Green

I have to say, I'm really blown away with my new 85mm 1.8 lens that arrived on my door step today. What a fast, quiet and awesome lens!! It's taking me some practice because I find myself wanting to be really close my subject, but it pays off in the end. The colors on this SOOC image are juicy...and I'm liking it. A lot.

Yes, 100% SOOC. I couldn't believe it either when I pulled it up in lightroom. When I get a chance later I'll go ahead and post my settings for anyone who cares. lol. Thanks for the comments ladies!! I'll check out your blogs later when I get a chance! :)

Melissa - this is one of the best SOOC shots I have seen yet since we started our challenge. Great job! This would definitely be in the top 3 for my new contest. Can't wait to see your work more often! Blessings, Jill

oh wow thanks Jill!! You guys are making me nervous that there is something that LR is doing to my photos without me knowing it! I checked, and it doesn't use any presets on import. The only thing I did was add the watermark on export to .jpg. I'm so flattered!!
