All alone



This is one flower out of many on the tree right outside my front door.

Beautiful!!! I love the softness of it, and the almost painted feeling. Well done, April!!

Brittney said...

Wow that is breathtaking! I love the imprinting effect it has going on. Beautiful! It's a shot I could look at/study for quite awhile. What were your camera settings on this?

Katy said...

Incredible, i'm loving this picture... how'd you do the background, it's stunning!!!! Really, i'm taken!

Blake said...

In a good way you could write a motivating statement under this and sell it! Just great!

Jackie said...

VeryVery good! so beautfiful and light. I love the bkgrd...must tell how you did it :) No cc here, its gorgeous!

Melanie said...

I love how you were able to focus on only that "one". the soft blurs in the background really set the stage for the one you shot. Great job!

I love it. It is so calming. and I love the off-centered look. I feel like I see a lot of photographers just plop a flower right in the middle of their frame and call it art. This is beautiful!

THIS IS STUNNING April! ABSOLUTELY beautiful. I would love to know what settings and lens you used!

The only CC I have would be that I wish the left edges of the flower were a little more defined...just a tad more so it would look a tiny bit more separate.

It is a gorgeous picture!

Thanks for all the feedback!

My settings were f/1.8, 1/2000, ISO200. I used my 50mm 1.8- it has the widest AP of any of my other lenses.

Katy- it was opening up the aperture all the way that causes the awesome bokeh. I WISH I had a lens that went to 1.2!

Mindy said...

April, I'm so with you on that! I just got my 1.8, and now I'm thinking, Oh, what I could do with a 1.2! (Does it ever end? ;)

I really like the way you've framed this (literally). It looks like it could be the cover of a set of notecards or a Successories poster.
