    Pretzel's Snack-A-Day (365 for 2014)
    Day 132 - May showers on May flowers (no pilgrims were harmed during this play on words)

    1st, with the pea gravel bed as a background...

    Pretzel's Snack-A-Day (365 for 2014)-day132-1.jpg

    Then a couple of different edits on a close up. Although I'm usually a big fan of B&W, I think the edge goes to the dark and grungy...

    I personally like the top shot best....the browns in the background are very pretty and compliment the colours in the daisy

    I am the king of over-clarifying/over-sharpening, and while I find the appeal in the other two, I think the first image captures that edge between the delicateness of the subject and the edit you want.

    Pretzel's Snack-A-Day (365 for 2014)
    Day 133 - 18-55

    Only one lens I haven't tested on the D7100 yet, until today.

    Kit lens - full glory. LOVE the close focus capabilities of a lens many dismiss...

    Pretzel's Snack-A-Day (365 for 2014)-day133-1.jpg

    Here's a 100% crop, just because I can.

    Pretzel's Snack-A-Day (365 for 2014)-day133-3.jpg

    A little different variation of the same flower. Anybody know what these are?

    Pretzel's Snack-A-Day (365 for 2014)-day133-4.jpg

    And a black and white, because we all know I love 'em!

    Pretzel's Snack-A-Day (365 for 2014)-day133-5.jpg

    Then, my favorite flower of the moment, the Darling Daisy. Close focus with the kit lens, and a bit of editing fun, and this time ( @wthorson ) I remembered the border!

    Pretzel's Snack-A-Day (365 for 2014)
    Day 134 - AROOOOO! Full moon low on the horizon last night, and I actually managed to capture it in the color I saw before shooting. Other than that, the full moon is kinda boring, since you don't get all the cool craters and such...

    Pretzel's Snack-A-Day (365 for 2014)
    Day 135 - Local Hero

    Here's Tulsa's Golden Driller. He's 76 feet tall, 43,500 pounds worth of oil worker, and the largest free standing statue in the world (last I knew, anyway).

    Pretzel's Snack-A-Day (365 for 2014)-day135-4.jpg

    The shot that made me dizzy as the clouds overhead were moving at a good clip.

    Pretzel's Snack-A-Day (365 for 2014)-day135-3.jpg

    And my personal favorite shot of the day.

    Pretzel's Snack-A-Day (365 for 2014)-day135-5.jpg

    He stands as a tribute to the oil and gas industry that made Tulsa what it is today.
