Floating Petal 2

Uploaded: June 02, 2006 06:35:49


My husband was hammering on the deck which caused the ripples in the water. Petal edges are reflecting torch ginger stalks.
Shot in RAW, close mode, 1/125 sec-F/5, lens 60mm.

that image is absolutely gorgeous.. did you change the color of the background to B&W? or was it created to be B&W?
Beautiful image!! LOve it!

Aloha Songbird, Mahalo! The water in the fish pond was nicely dark. So no desaturation was needed. Just a bit of cropping. #9727298
