and just for nimbus - its in colour
And all the better for it
Might be tempted to clone out the little white spot where the light has hit the tip of a leaf though
Lovely, very well done, very effective, beautiful colours and shades.
I agree the spot just below the lower petals needs cloning out, but still a great shot.
I'd go for a square crop which would solve the stray light issue.
Very nice shot, lovely and sharp. Nice detail in the petals.
Well done Adrian - love it - good detail
And a great file size as well!
Light and detail make this for me - agree about the leaf tip needing to be got shot of.
You've chosen a v good specimen too. With flowers, they need to be physically perfect or have ragged character, IMHO; anything in between just looks messy.
I'm working on some B+W plants and flowers at present (because I know how popular it is on here at the moment!)
Like this though.
Lovely stuff! Yellow's my favourite colour...
I agree with all the comments - very striking against the black background. I like it!
As Alec said, that's a perfect specimen. Almost looks artificial it's so flawless. I like the changing tone of the background as well - subtle. Was this shot using natural lighting?
Thanks for all the feedback guys!
The leaf (with the overexposed tip) has to go!
I tried a square crop but prefer the present one.
I also tried it in mono and post it here (for AlecM - I'm thinking about a mono flora panel; just thinking!)
And the size is because there's only 2 colours really - yellow and black!
Somehow, I can't help feeling that doing a mono conversion of the beautiful yellow flower is somehow missing the point... Though I agree there are some nice textures in the petals.
When compared directly with the colour version - yes, the colour version wins hand's down. But as part of a mono panel of flora, focussing on the textures, structures and shapes, without the distraction of colour, then I think it is a different matter.
The textures and lighting do indeed carry this as a mono study - but i Still prefer the colour version.
I like them both - it makes you look at the flower in different ways - super!
Excellent - much prefer this one. Really clean and clear petals!
I know that. But do others lol
