A single bloom
Making the most of the glorious weather.
The sun was almost directly behind the camera ~ SW of the lens direction
The main plant (V2) I took without any compensation, but the bloom required quite a bit of neg comp (-3 if I remember correctly) because parts of the petal were getting blown out.
I used a bland (but I trust sympathetic) piece of mount-board as a BG.
Upon reflection I could have used a white reflector below the bottom right corner.
But it was very bright sunlight at the time. The idea didn't occur to me, then
