Part of my experimentation with composition and framing.
A lovely capture, Russell, but I feel the frame is a little to thick, and draws the eye away from the beauty of the flower. Carol
Thanks Carol, appreciated, was always going to be a risk. Regards
A really beautiful image Russell, depicting this rather beautiful flower, stunning natural colours, and great detail throughout, love the presentation so very apt.
The shape of the flower in the square frame is spot on, Russell, but the frame is too heavy for me as well.
Everyone's a critique It's a beautiful image, it indeed looks great in square crop, the actual frame I can look past as I do most external factors and base it on the images own merits. It's the flower's colour and the title chocolate which has my brain doing somersaults ...on my monitor it's a beautiful dark red, not brown. Super flower captured nonetheless.
Great close up and presentation
Thanks all for commenting. Although the specimens for sale now are poor you will find the odd nice bloom. IMHO an underrated plant that looks brilliant, smells of vanilla and is incredibly difficult to expose for. Goof luck if you go for it. Regards
Undeniably a beautiful flower.The frame is perfect colour and
doesn't bother me but there seems to be a concensus for a narrower one.
The inner green and the caption are perfect.
Lovely image but the framing a wee bit heavy - seems to be in competition with the gorgeous flower.
Beautiful. The colour and texture is really good!
Fantastic image Russell , excellent presentation and composition as usual.
Thank you Julia for the UA it is really appreciated. Russell
