Light – A Closer Look 7


This is my first foray into Gardening Gone Wild’s Picture This Contest. The subject of the contest for May is light in the macro or close-up world. I shot a few pics yesterday, and I’m having a hard time choosing which one to enter.

“Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth and you will know the key to photography.”

George Eastman

Here are my choices:

I got inside this beautiful Alstroemeria:

Here is a native Lavatera:

And last, but not least, a tree dahlia from one of my favorite gardens:

Here is the full image of the poppy. I had to crop it to fit for the top picture in the template. I really like the way you can see many stages of its growth in one shot:

Which is your favorite? I need to pick one by Monday!

    I like the full version of the poppy – looks like it’s dancing!

    If we’re talking light, I’d pick the tree dalia. The detail in the petals is beautiful especially where they overlap. And the angle of looking up into the flower rather than down I like

      Thanks, Reema!
      I think you’ve swung the tide. I actually have until Tuesday, which is good, because it’s so beautiful outside today, I am moving away from the computer…now.
