About the Image(s)

Dahlia flowers all seem to be so perfect with beautiful colors. This is a close-up I shot with my 200mm-macro lens. Very little was done in post. I did remove some specks of dust on several petals. No cropping. Taken at f-22, 1/40 sec. ISO 800 Exposure bias -1 stop. As always I was using my tripod with a polarizer on the lens.

Beautiful image! I love the colors and how crisp it is. I also like using a polarizer on my lens.   Posted: 09/08/2023 11:00:39

A beautiful photo, Dick. The colors are so vibrant. I would like to see a little more on the right, to balance the center.   Posted: 09/14/2023 10:20:45

Hello Dick, what a beautiful image- great detail and color! Fran made a good suggestion... it needs a little more space on the right side of the image.   Posted: 09/17/2023 20:57:15

Hi Dick, Our camera club's assigned subject for next month is Neon Colors. This would Wow the judge. The sharpness is impeccable, showing off the edges so well. I agree that a bit of space on the right is needed. Well done, it's great.   Posted: 09/21/2023 13:22:11
