Halloween Pennant

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by Richard Peters, Aug 6, 2009.

  1. Hi all, not been around much lately or used the camera too much. However I've just returned from a very wet week in Florida (storms storms and more storms) with a couple of images I managed to get when the sun did show.

    This is a Halloween Pennant in the obelisk pose, taken at the Orlando Wetlands Park. Almost FF with just a small amount of canvas removed from the left and top. I may play around with a slightly tighter crop too as I think that would work well, but for now decided to show off the bigger picture as I like the shape of the leaf/perch. You can see a couple more of my shot from this visit to Florida on my blog, HERE.

    Hand held with D300, 200-400 and 1.4x TC, 550mm, f8, 1/400, ISO500

    Rich; beautiful shot. I think I would leave the crop pretty much as is.
     
  4. Pretty little thing. Nice technically, pleasing composition - what more could you ask?

    Cheers,
