  1. Nice! I see what Steve means, and cannot decide if it’s real, or a trick of the eye. I also see a faint heart pattern in the shadowing of the petal. But not a faint-hearted shot! The color is wonderful, and I like the simplicity, relieved by the slight asymmetry and serrations along the edge.


  2. Carolyn says

    Can’t begin to describe the awe that comes to me when I ponder the ‘genius’ behind the lens that can evoke such awakenings of imagination .
    Thank you…….


  3. My eyes are drawn to the light that delineates the subject and the background. To me it’s where the magic happens. Can’t even imagine the intricacies and meticulousness that goes into the post processing. Yet without the imagination to visualize the image, none of it happens. Bravo!


  4. I like playing with scale, which this does…it could be a mammoth landscape. I noticed the subtle red in the black background too, and thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. I like the gradation from left to right – the fade to black. It’s a beautiful way to see a tulip petal! And I wonder what it would look like in black and white.


    • Thank you. You see exactly what I see. Regarding landscapes, take a look at my website, specifically the florascapes. I’ll post one of those on the blog someday. But for a sneak peek, take a look. http://www.amagaphoto.com

      Black-and-white is an intriguing idea. I’ll try it and see how I do. I am still very green on the subject of channel mixing. Pun intended.
