During my trip to the Pacific NW I also stopped at the Portland Japanese Garden. This place is probably a tourist trap, but it was a nice photo opp. It was fairly empty due to some recent drizzling rain, which means perfect conditions for photography! Here are some of my favorite shots.
I did have kind of a difficult time editing a lot of these photos. Some of them tend to look a little fake because of the high saturation, but that is honestly what it looks in real life. There were a lot of plants and a lot of color which makes some of these images look pretty busy and almost fake. There was also a big contrast in the highlights and the shadows which makes things tricky, but overall I am really happy with how a lot of these turned out. Thanks for looking!
