    Full frontal of a May apple bloom. These flowers are mostly hidden from view by a canopy of leaves. This wildflower grows to a height of about a foot (30cm) & typically in shaded areas. I was being assaulted by skeeters getting a few shots.

    Damn you... :waiting:


    Nice flower though, a bit "flat" for my taste, both contrast & perspective. But a good exposure.

    Beautiful. Only thing I would say is, the slightly overexposed leaf on the bottom right and the flower on the bottom left are a bit distracting. As long as you're going full frontal, why not go full frame?

    I'm familiar w/ May Apples, so I can imagine what you had to do to keep the canopy of leaves out of the way to get the shot. I like the lighting and the bokeh. Too bad that over exposed spot is there.

    Thanks, it was a bit of a challenge, I had to hold a leaf off another plant to shade a bead of light on one petal & totally missed the spot that is blown out.

    I normally do not like a square format but in this case I think it works as it helps bring out the 3D effect I was trying for.

    It really does look 3D. And the veining detail is much more noticeable.
