My mom's bleeding heart plant We actually have about 5 of these plants this year. Seems they spread after we took out a couple dying shrubs last year. More pretty flowers, I won't complain Also, my 50mm f/1.4 is better for flower shots than I imagined
Congrats on the 2nd place for in our spring contest~
To begin, flower choice is great, along with the color palette; pink and green? Spring and summer! The technique in this photo really does shine; your use of aperture, dof, and ISO is evident. the palm trees (?) in the background (upper third of the photo), seeing as it is so blurred and unfocused, I cannot tell what is really is, is fantastically used as directional forces to lead the viewers eye around the composition. The picture plane is fantastic; your frame is great. The variations in tone and hue adds variety yet the actual overall hue unifies. The asymmetrical balance adds effect and the actual subject, the flowers, look almost unrealistic. Great job on this photo, keep shooting.
tell your mum that i love her flowers
