    Guys, I saw this pretty and tiny yellow flowers (about 15cm high) growing out of a concrete bridge near my work place.
    Been trying to capture it several times but never had any good results. Would like to hear suggestion on how to bring out the feeling of a pretty natural tiny thing surrounded by large man made concrete structure

    Below are several of my tries





    Thanks in advance

    oh occasionaly it will bloom (first pic) or not (2nd pic)

    not sure if this is feasible but anyway, it's just my 2 cents.

    perhaps a macro shot from the bottom of the plant up and with a higher building beside.

    it may give the kind of feeling that a tiny plant is fighting for survival in a concrete jungle.

    do a series
    a few macro shots on the plant
    final shot on plant and environment...something like the first pic.

    this will give people a sense of surprise.

    Thanks antere. going to try it the next time i have the chance. Just worried if i go to low, won't be able to show the base where it grows out of hard tile.

    Nice idea Khairi, would be a nice project to make a series but currently I'm looking for a single angle that would capture the whole idea

    Thank you for the suggestions...

    Would love to hear more

    Upz..........

    I think antere's idea could work if you shoot with a very wide lens...say 24 or mayb 18...b/w might work...Hmm...

    Sounds promising... the only problem is I only have 28-80 lens

    with the plant at such a low level...with a 28mm...it will be tricky...but worth the experiment if you want to.

    Umm, you can pluck the flower, then all your worries will go away...
