Lamprocapnos Spectabilis

The Bleeding Hearts are in full bloom in the back garden. The luscious pink brings splashes of colour to dense green foliage. The second image is a multi-exposure composite of five bleeding heart images superimposed to create the abstract form above. The images were captured shortly after an early morning fog had lifted leaving the tiny droplets of water you can see on the foliage in the third image.

Images were captured in May 2022 in my backyard, Waterloo Region, Ontario.
Equipment: Canon EOS 60D, EF-S18-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS
Additional processing via Adobe Lightroom/Photoshop.

      My grandmother always had them in her garden. These ones were planted by the previous owners of our home and just keep coming back. They are beautiful.

    A co-worker has a picture of bleeding hearts as her Teams background and they’re nothing like your pictures! If I had to pick a favorite, it’d be #1 because of the composition but it’s not beating out #3 by much. Did you make the multi-exposure composite in Photoshop?

      Yes the multi-exposure (ME) was achieved in Photoshop. My digital camera doesn’t allow for ME images like my old film camera did. I have tons of real ME images abstracts on slide film somewhere. In some ways I miss my film camera!

    I’ve heard other people say they miss film cameras. For someone like me, a hobbyist who never really grasped the match/science behind photography, digital cameras are perfect: just point and shoot. They’re getting harder find though as cameras seem to be taking over that market.
