This Lilly opened over night.
A bit of fluff
#2 Really sharp capture of the thistledown (from the bull thistle). I like the texture in the background too! Makes me want to post mine
The fist one is very beautiful - love lilies. The only issues I have are, my eye is drawn to the cropped off bud to the right, plus there are some overexposed grass blades and petal edges to the left of the image.
Otherwise, love the focus - and love the colors!
These are awesome!
Sidenote: I realized I have been spending too much time on this forum when this morning I noticed a robin feeding its young right outside my window and thought, "This is a job for Ron Evers". HAHAHA
The edges of the petals are white or nearly so but the leaf is indeed over exposed in spite of using a negative exposure compensation. I have a lot of trouble with blown highlights.
