Nice shot - I like the effect of the light on the background too.

I just noticed today that my Muscari will be open soon - I must try to remember to pick one when they're a bit bigger.

It's not easy to take a really good muscari shot, I think - most shots seem dull. But you've done a very good job here.

Definitely better than any of us managed last year! This really should be a photogenic little plant, but I think you're the first one to do it justice.

It won't stop me trying again though Smile

Nicely done. I've never used flash for flowers outdoors before. What's the technicque with regard to positioning of the refelctor and balance of natural and flash lighting?
3 Apr 2006 12:46AM
Marvellous bit of photography.
Congrats on POTW
3 Apr 2006 1:11AM
I agree totally with Cheryl's comments! I remember us all trying these last year and the results were relatively dismal! However, this one is cracking and the best muscari shot I've seen so far. Congrats on a great shot, EC and POTW.
