A Lily from a Tesco's bunch.A lovely pink blush to the edges of the petals.

Just playing with light,this is lit in the centre by a small torch,in a daylit room.Trying to highlight the stamen colour & detail.
I wanted to show the softness of the petals but still keeping the detail in the centre.

F11 manual mode
2 secs.with tripod
ISO 100
Spot metering..from the bg.
Raw converted in C1LE,levels adjustment,slight crop & border added in CS2

Thankyou for looking.

You caught the light just right. The brightly lit important parts are against a solid dark background. It looks like an exhibit in a museum.

Beautiful shot, almost as if a show unto itself the way the light seems to put the stamen in the spot light, trully remarkabe presentation. Spot on! Click!!!

This is a wonderful image Janet.
Love what you've done with the lighting.
I think that sometimes we get our best pics just by "messing" around..I've done it a couple of times, then forgotten what I've done, so can't do it lol

Well lit centre with excellent detail Janet, that works very well. I dont know why but the pink has not come up too well on my monitor it seems dark.The image has got a nice overall look though.
