    I took this the other afternoon as the last rays are peeking through branches and lighting up a begonia. The spotlight effect combined with the intense color created a somewhat surreal look. I liked the dark exposure but wanted some feedback. I also left the pollen on the lower petal instead of cleaning it up, what do you think?

    On my monitor I can barely see the leaves but if I brighten it way up they are very visible. What do you see?

    I like the look of the flower and think you did the right thing leaving the pollen there as that is the way you found it. The light does create the surreal feeling as you said. I guess it was a shame you couldn't move it so you could control the background but i am assuming it is planted in the ground and not in a pot.

    Really well done and I love the deep colors.
