Sidelit Daisies [3]

  1. Not sure if these will appeal, I found them quite interesting as an off camera flash lighting experiment.

    #1 - Flash from below and left shooting up into the petals of the flowers. The see thru effect of the overlapping petals adds quite a nice quality to this shot for me.

    #2 - The leading, in focus petals are rendered close to shadow here, with just enough colour definition to make them part of the arrangement. I liked the play of bright white, very dark, and then the normal tones of the other petals behind.

    I thought you misspelled 'satellite dishes', but you had indeed spelled 'sidelit daisies' and I like them better anyway. :lol:
