Dicentra spectabillis white var. by Dan McKenna

July 2024 - Dicentra spectabillis white var.

About the Image(s)

Sony A7rv, Sony 90mm f2.8 at f10, ISO 1250, 1/160 sec.
Two image panorama focus stacked. Assembled in Helicon and PTGui Pro. I can bring the subject closer to the lens by doing a pano and in this case it was just a 2 panel pano shot in portrait orientation. Although the red and white bleeding hearts are more popular the white variety is pleasing as well IMO.

Hi Dan: Your technical quality is simply perfect on the white bleeding hearts. White is probably the most difficult flower color to photograph as it is so easy to burn out the white so you have no detail on the petals. The white flowers show good detail and texture. I like the soft subtle mood you have created, then your composition leading from the lower left up through the frame to the upper right is ideal.
Good background with just enough habitat showing to give some depth.
If I had a suggestion it would be to add a thin white border, it would separate your black background from the black website page.   Posted: 07/06/2024 00:28:24
