Thread: Lilly after storm

    Default Lilly after storm

    I was at Bintan for a short break...
    And started snapping pictures.
    I am using a budget camera (Finepix 601)
    nothing spectacular but wanting to make the best out of a cheap camera.
    it was raining heavily that morning and after the storm subsided i saw a battered lilly.. the petals looks ruffled but the centre part of the flower seems bright and sunny ... i wanted to show a theme of peace within a stormy surrounding or peace and calmness after a storm is the most beautiful... Please C&C

    Looks a little shaken by da downpour but the stem and petals r still straight & stiff showing it's tenacity to survive da storm.
    Just like life.
    Nice job done.

    I like how the flower really seems to glow and stand out from the leaves. Though the perspective doesn't really seem very flattering to me. Maybe something higher and top-down view - not necessarily right on top would be better. Although perhaps you are limited by the fact that lilies grow in ponds..

    Still - nice shot dude! =) Especially when you take into account that you are using a P&S.

    Good luck! If you can do good shots with a P&S - you bet you'd do marvelous ones with a DSLR. Hope you get it soon and we can see more works from you. And I bet you'd have fun with whatever DSLR you get.. =)

    I tried to focust deep into the inside of the Lily to capture the "motion" the pollen stems looks as if they are moving like a coral ... comments?
