This is one of the climbing plants in my back garden. Every spring it produces these large flower heads (I've forgotten the name of the plant).
I didn't want to have harsh shadows so waited until the sun had moved and the plant was lit by gentle light.
I used the macro setting on my zoom lens. I wanted the center of the flower to be in focus and the petals to be soft so used a large aperture and set the AF area mode to single point.
I'd appreciate any comments, advice and mods.
