Treasure of green houses by Georges Dormoy

September 2021 - Treasure of green houses

About the Image(s)

This photo was taken inside the green house of the Montreal Botanical Garden, with my Nikon D100 at f/2.8 and 1/60 at ISO 200. I used a Nikon macro flash. But I did not have a tripod (not allowed in green houses)

The background was distant enough to have it underexposed.

The challenge was to master the depth of field by making sure that the orientation of the camera vis- -vis the flower gives a very similar distance between each part of the flower and the camera lens

I think you accomplished your goal as the DOF is quite good, everything sharp and in focus. Nice selection as it has brilliant colors.   Posted: 09/06/2021 11:26:23

Hi, Georges,
Very sharp colorful image. Lots of detail in the blossom to study.
I tried a quick flip of your image so the the blossom is pointing to the right. Also did an ever so slight crop down the lefthand side of your original. Good background colors and I do like the various stems creeping into the image.
Enjoyed looking at this very much.   Posted: 09/09/2021 08:13:32

Thanks Janet and Ally for your cheerful comments. I agree that the flipped picture with a slight crop makes it better looking.   Posted: 09/09/2021 16:04:27

Great sharp image with great colors lots of impact. Nice background makes the image pop. I like the flip Janet made but I made a little different crop.   Posted: 09/12/2021 14:48:25

Hi, Georges!
To me, this is a dynamic composition from an interesting perspective. To me highlighting the details of the blossoms and suggestion of stems creeping into the frame create impact. I think the horizontal flip that Janet and Dick suggest further enhances the image.

To my eye the blossom appears to glow. Did you add any backlighting? I admire the red and purple contrasts and wonderful depth of color that are captured. Thank you for posting this one!   Posted: 09/17/2021 22:27:00
