Hawaiian Torch Ginger

Uploaded: May 21, 2002


I used a medium extension tube and a Canon 35-105 zoom lens to capture the image of this interesting and unusual plant , in order to fill the frame with its incredible RED color.

Great Color and composition! It was impressive in the thumbnail, but when I opened it up it was amazing. Down to the sheen of the petals. #5671

Thanks so much for your comments! I also shot it in full form (globe, like an artichoke), but this "half version" came out much better composition-wise - and closer, of course. I appreciate your feedback! #8196

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
