Existing Light for Drama -- Purple Iris

This is another example of dramatic, complex light on a very colorful subject. The conventional approach to a subject like this would be flash. Existing light provides extreme animation and subtlety in many shades of color and shadow. The bloom is almost symmetrical but not quite. Note how the third point intersections fall on the composition.

This was taken with a point and shoot camera on a tripod just before sunset. It was a rather long exposure and could not be hand held.
