Jersey Park Sunshine, Bluebells & Flowers

It was a lovely spring day, so what better than to grab the camera and go and enjoy the outdoors. At the moment, bluebells are popular, as even recently I posted a selection of bluebell images with the family. However, that area in particular is very popular, so every image that comes from there is very recognisable. I decided to go elsewhere, and remembered that a little woodland and garden park near me had bluebells, so ventured out and got some images!

I took my Fujifilm X-T3 armed with the Viltrox 56mm F/1.4, the 50-230mm and my Olympus E-PL8 with 17mm F/2.8 lens. I used both cameras, however, it was the X-T3 with the 56mm that I used the most. The lens has really sneaked up on me, and gone from a rarely used curiosity, to a lens that I like to use most of the time. It is just perfect for the images I want to capture, and although I did take a handful of photos with the E-PL8, I have not used any of those here today as I just did not find them interesting enough.

All the images were edited in ON1 Photo Raw 2023, although I was originally going to use Darktable, but realised I had not yet added my colour profile presets, so it was easier to just use ON1. Just like the Viltrox lens, ON1 Photo Raw 2023 has sneaked up on me, and a lot to do with that is the new laptop, which means that the editing software now just works with no issues.

Do not forget to click on the images to see them full screen and see any EXIF data you may need.

As you can see, even though it was a super-bright day, I have gone for a different look, capturing flowers in the shade, with light escaping through to them, or in the scene with them. I decided on the colour grading, because it was the vibe I was looking for, and I think it is a nice change.

  1. Your choice for the 56mm Viltrox paid off, the field of view for Fuji with this lens corresponds to 84mm compared to full frame.
    A very good choice for the flowers and distant landscapes.
    In the end it turned out to be a great series of photos.
