March 2023 - FLORIST DAISY

About the Image(s)

This is a Macro shot of a “Florist Daisy”. Taken indoors in very low light using a Canon 70D, 18-135 @135mm f/5.6 ISO 1600 with 3 extension tubes totaling 68mm, on a tripod.

I was almost touching this flower, but was drawn in by the color, the glistening of the petals and the upward curve of two of them.

I Usually prefer my flowers tack sharp but in this case it's a very interesting "take" and was very well exeduted.   Posted: 03/02/2023 15:47:48

Fred, this is a beautiful soft moody image. I did try a 180 on it and I am not sure which one I like best. Very well done.   Posted: 03/03/2023 16:30:32

Wow! Kudos, on your efforts to create this lovely image!

I love the depth, softness this composition offers ... I can stare at this for hours. Now you must print and frame it, or sell/donate to your favorite doctor's office!

I mean, it is really a very soothing image!   Posted: 03/10/2023 12:45:03

Love the softness of the image , however for my taste I would prefer a little brighter image. POV is interesting, I would have gone for a tighter crop though.   Posted: 03/16/2023 21:08:41
