Spring is coming....*

Never tried anything like this before but got inspired. It's just set on my kitchen windowsill and shot from lowdown to get the white sky background.

The petal detail and lighting are gorgeous. VERY nice!

Gorgeous shot; really wonderfully taken and presented. The backlit petals of the tulips makes this shot very special. Vikas.

Nice. Backlighting, strong detail, and somewhat muted colors make this a gem. Considering you had never tried something of this ilk, very successful image. Again, nice.

Ahhhh, thank you! Sooo much more enjoyable now! :) ~ Lonnit

Ok, I'll repost without the frame as it seems to be a distraction. Thanks for the feedback as I'm really keen to learn and get better!
Guest 14-Feb-2005 10:28
Have to agree about the frame - I don't think it adds anything, and could well be a distraction (but I rarely like frames). Phil

Beautiful image, I like how the backlighting brings out the texture of the petals. --Melanie (mlynn)

Thanks for the feedback - I wasn't sure about the frame on this one and could easily just use the unframed version, or a different style?????

I think it's a lovely image, but I can't focus on it long enough without distraction - my eye is being drawn directly to the drop shadow border b/c of it's contrast and because of the angled leading line the flowers create that drives one right to it. ~ Lonnit

I like the back lighting and translucent pedals. Well done.
Guest 12-Feb-2005 16:19
Thanks Michael - high praise!
You may be right about a blue background but I only had a windowsill to do this on so my options were a little limited. I quite fancy having another go know though......
Guest 12-Feb-2005 16:16
Wonderfully backlighted! Not overly so that the foreground details are lost, so good job! I'm wondering if the background is blue, would that be better as it's complimentary to yellow.
