Roughage

For me, flower pictures are just flower pictures, and there's not much new too be done. Still, ya just can't help yourself sometimes. These photos are all raw from the camera without any color adjustments in the computer.



Normally, shooting down on flowers is boring because it is the same perspective that everyone sees when looking at flowers. However, the geometry in this first one was intriguing and and I tried to line up directly overhead. The sun was setting which made it a simple matter to keep my shadow out of the frame. The ultra short depth of field really makes those petals pop. The second photo is the same flower from a different perspective. Nikon D90, 50mm lens, f/1.8, 1/4000s, ISO 720, 360, respectively.
