The Duel

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
The Duel
The Duel
f/ 8.0, 1/10 sec., ISO-200, tripod mounted, studio lighting, 11:13 PM, Philadelphia, PA. I was trying to shoot something with leading lines. Made a pattern of the long thin leaves that the florist put with the flowers when I bought them. Positioned the two calla lilies in front of the leaf pattern.
