Nature's Tapestry

 
Nature's Tapestry, by Reed A. George
Mamiya Universal Press Camera, Mamiya Sekor 100mm f3.5 Lens
Kodak Portra 160 Color Print Film
 
A simple nature shot I made with my recently-acquired Mamiya Universal. I tried to keep the depth of field quite thin, and centered on the cattail just right of center. I love the color in this shot. The purple contrast to all the green and yellow works for me. I also really like how Portra gives such subtlety to color. I actually boosted the vibrance a little in post-processing.
 
I also cropped the image, and added some framing effects in Nik's Analog Efex Pro add-in.
 
I am really enjoying the slow, deliberate style that the new Universal forces on me.
