A cliched shot now I know but it's my first gerbera shot.
Nothing cliched when the shot is as good as this! Lovely Jane
I like that shot! its a stricking image - could you describe a little more about how you set it up - lighting etc... I feel inspired to try!!! Nice one!
I love the different shades of petals in the light. My kind of photo.
This is excellent love the back lighting
Excellent, the back lighting is really nice
very good work, fantastic image
oh yes this is a cracking image.
Ok...my setup was as follows...
1. One gerbera plant on a desk.
2. One desk light angled behind flower.
J'ai fini! LOL!
classic. you did very well on this :o)
+ve: Great comp
-ve: Slightly soft in the stamens
Oh yeah thanks...I agree...I need a tripod to enable use of a smaller aperture don't I?
Yeah, would help - also have to admit to struggling for the -ve (hence only 1 +ve, but them's the rules!)
Ah...I have another - I also should have plucked out the little fleck-like petals (but as it's a potted gerbera I was loathed to!)
+ive: Contrast is excellent as is composition.
-ive: Agree with Mark re: stamens.
The thumbnail does not reflect this picture's quality. On seeing the larger version, you have done a good job with this one. Will you try it again with a tripod?
When I get one yeah. I have to pay off the credit card for the camera first! LOL!
+ve: Lovely rich clour
-ve: Distracting material/petals on the centre petals
Sad to give it a minus as it is very good. gets a click as well
superb light, great comp, very rich colours, click (*:*)
excellent shot, love the lighting "click"
love the colour of the gerbera against the dark background. Nice one
Maybe cliched but colourful with effective composition, nice work, I like it.
I am surprosed I missed so many of your excellent photos ! Late click.
Yep, I reckon your version is better than mine. Not just in the composition, but in the way the light filters through the petals more strongly than in mine. So have a very late click from me! Nice one.
