Flamingo flower 1

By CathyI  
Flamingo flower 1

Right – having finally got a new computer and DSL connection up and running, here I am uploading my first shot for quite some time!

I’ve been doing quite a lot of close-up/plant photography recently, so I thought I’d upload a few of those shots first... This is a flamingo flower (lat.: Anthurium Andreanum – I think!) and I just loved the “jump-out-and-grab-you” red! Hope you like it!

Exposure: 8 sec. @ f22

Hey Cathy, good to have you back! And you are off to a great start with an HC with this good strong shot. I think you have the flower name right and it realy does jump out at you.

The swirl of the flower and its placement within the frame makes this an exceptional image, in my opinion. You have mastered the art of filling the frame. Beautiful!
