It's like "idyllic flower photo" morning.

I dub thee Yellow
I dub thee Yellow

ISO 200
exp 1/2000

I saw these flowers outside Middleton Barriques last night as I was heading in to edit piles and piles of photos. The light was really good so I popped off a few shots at different angles. I took my time and thought about backgrounds and spacing while looking through the viewfinder far more consciously than normally. And succeeded.
I did nothing to this photo. Not even cropping. I resized and put the border on it for posting as always but otherwise, nada.

Work is going well today. I have a few things coming in that are interesting. Sadly, one thing was supposed to come in Monday and is due Friday. It should be coming to me in about 20 minutes. Sigh. Deadlines apparently mean nothing except for QA.

another great photo.

i like that you're doing more with your composition and such *in* camera, rather than adjusting in photoshop.

as overdone as flower photos are (i've done my share as well) the colors you captured are incredibly rich. well done.

In camera composition is the goal and something I've been working on. I just need to step back and think before I shoot when I can. In this sort of case, stumbling on something neat, i have plenty of time. Whereas with the sunsets you don't have time to compose while it's happening; that's why I got there at 7:15 to take test shots before the sun started to set.

Now, it's gonig to be weird when i tackle my next goal of learning street/candid photography. That's harder for me, the people that is.

I tend to shy away from floers too since eveyone and teir broth photographs flowers. But, yes, these were so striking when I walked by that I couldn't resist.
