  #182 Contre Jour / Backlighting
Entry 8 of 23
   
 
African Iris       ©2017 ysal
Panasonic DMC-GF1       8th place, 97 points
1/5s, f6.3, ISO 100, 120mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Cloned out a stray light artifact, increased color saturation, denoised, sharpened, resized.       Extra Info: Aka Fortnight Lily. it seems to be the only flower in my yard that blooms year-round. I plucked it, brought it into a dark room, stuck a flash light behind it, and voila!

    This is so ethereal. You've chosen the perfect exposure to showcase this fragile flower.

    You make it sound so simple in your Extra Info but this is very well done - the focus and the way you have used the back-light is very effective.

    had you thought of a black card with a hole for the flash and then you could have left it outside

    Dramatic shot of an attractive flower - the curves of the inner parts (I never can get their names right) are especially striking.

    All I can say is you did it brilliantly (pun intended). Beautiful shot - very well done.
