A palm tree in Colombo, Sri Lanka

Palm trees, of so very many varieties, grow everywhere in Sri Lanka.

This is a neighbor's palm which I can see clearly from our front upstairs balcony. I love it – it's thick, lush, and that one single red and orange leaf? I love it. 🙂

  1. Socalgal, you’re so sweet. Thank you. 🙂

    Sharpness comes from the lens (the quality of the glass) as well as understanding your camera’s focusing system well enough to make it work for you. Cameras don’t know what you want to focus on, so they sometimes get it wrong. At least, that’s my experience. So I either go manual focus or change the autofocus points when needed.

    Vivid colors? That’s from post-processing. 😀 I love vivid colors (heh!), so I boost saturation, contrast, and change a few other things when I post process my photos. I use lightroom, but it can also be done in photoshop, photoshop elements, aperture (Mac only), Gimp (free) ACDSee, and other post-processing programs. 🙂
