Around the yard today

Post by microcollector »

As the day dawned sunny and calm, I took the opportunity to take a few photos around the yard. These were taken with a hand held Nikon D50 and a Micro Nikkor 105 mm lens.

All three are beautiful Doug. I especially like the second one. There is something about the colors and the one flower being in focus, which smacks me in the frontal lobe. I like the backlighting on the first picture but I probably would have tried to take that web out of the picture in post processing…a little distracting because it leads Right to the flower.

Beautiful series Doug. I particularly like the graceful flow of #3. I have a small suggestion for #1. A small reflecter aimed as the stigma would have lightened the center of the flower and brought out some of the interior detail without changing the beatiful backlighting through the petals.
