"August Contest -Flowers"


US
          

This months theme is Flowers. This months theme is Flowers. We had a Flower Closeup theme a few months ago and now we are broadening that theme to just flowers, such as groups of flowers but a single flower also works. The difference is basically that with the ‘closeup’ theme the idea was more to get inside and capture a portion of the flower whereas now we want an entire flower or a set/group/bouquet of flowers.

RULES:
--Post up to 7 images but only one image/post
--Include shooting info so we can learn from each other
--Previously posted images are welcome but not previous contest winners
--When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post.
--Include a title in the subject line
--Capture must be shot with a Nikon camera and any lens
--Comments are welcome but NO public critiquing, i.e., how to make it better. This is a contest so PM's are a better way to offer feedback
--WARNING Posts that do not meet the spirit of the challenge will not be selected as finalists and may be periodically removed by the moderators without notice

The top images will be selected by the previous months winner and be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. The winning image will be added to the Macro Contest Winners Gallery

To think this is a weed in your part of the world. In my opinion the best from your group of photos. Did you use natural light?
Nice photo thanks

Hi Aart,
Actually,
The image was taken in my garage just below my skylight to get the light inside the flower, as for the weed bit, florists are charging big money for these "weeds"

"Happy Returns" is a repeating daylily , a little smaller than a Stella D'oro. Also a more bright lemon yellow as compared to a Stella's gold color.
Loved the lines of the foilage behind the flowers

Flower and Sprinkler
Just as I started to photograph the flowers (Peony?) in this bed the irrigation system kicked in. Not sure if a a slower or faster shutter speed would have helped the background more. Unfortunately I didn't experiment more. In most the background was too busy with rain streaks. I did like the droplets forming on the flower.

I enjoyed your picture very much and I like the information gained by the raindrops. Some of the red might be blown out but it does not bother me at all.

I have a question to all the boffin's out there: A long lens (like the 450mm in this picture) give a feeling of three dimensionality to the picture?. I want to investigate the following. Take a full frame picture of a suitable subject at F8 but vary the distance to accommodate different focal lengths. Or do somebody know the result without trying?

The only word that fits this great shot is WOW. It would have been a great floral take but the visitor certainly enhanced the experience.

the gardener in me must correct you..that is Angel Trumpet. Moon Flower is a white night blooming flower that looks like (and is) a large Morning Glory.Now that said..you did a great job capturing that 'blush' color.

Thank you.

A happy coincidence of flowers and light. Those three flowers photographed at that angle from low down were on a plane parallel to the sensor in the camera. Usually they will not be! The light was late in the afternoon, diffused sunlight through cloud and from behind me. I did wait for the light, but that really was the only skill I contributed. Nature did the rest. Four flowers would not have worked!

It is a pleasure to see a master at work. Did you use side lighting with a velvet screen? You mastered the yellows extremely well there are only two tiny patches washed out.

I wish I could capture the scent of these flowers that greets me in the morning when one or more opens in the porch. There were four today so I thought I would share one.

Thank you Dan!

Sometimes plants just present a flower saying 'photograph me'. Sometimes I can capture the moment. I was pleased with how this one worked out, but the rest were second rate!

Thank you Aart,

I like these guys on other people's meadows, but close inspection has to be undertaken with care as they are often 4 foot tall and wide. The prickles are not soft! I had to change from a 21 mm to 50 mm lens for this shot so as not to be in the plant.

Thanks Mike! Glad you like it.
For whatever reason -I'm anything but a gardner-our lavender patches were in
excellent condition this year.
I'm just learning to use the 105. Very happy with it though it's difficult to use when approaching 1:1 magnification.

I think this is also a Commelina spp. Some of them may become weedy. A good composition. Do you also find blue sometimes difficult to match? I do not think this is however a problem with Commelina flowers. Somebody told me that some blue flowers also reflect infra-red, the digital camera pick this up and give a pinkish cast to the flower instead of a true blue.

The colors are close to what I recall the flower looked like but I confess I wasn't concerned about an accurate match. One blue flower that has given me trouble in the past is the Spiderwort but I haven't shot that one with the D800E, so I don't know how it would handle it.

I think your identification of this one is correct.

Thanks -
John

I don't know whiter it's IR or UV reflection, or anything else, but I do find great difficulties to match colours with most blue and violet flowers. Even trying different light sources, sunlight, flash etc. Some react as if they had 'optical bleacher' in their pigmentation like some fabrics and white clothes.( I believe this is the name in English for 'blanqueador optico').

I recall having read that most petals pigmentation is "designed" to attract pollinizers and therefore reflect better those wavelengths they are most sensitive to.

Maybe someone with more biological knowledge can chime in and confirm.

Regards,

Jordi

Hi Jordi,
Now I am really deviating from the subject.
Pollinators, but bees in particular can see UV, If you examine flowers (mostly tubular flowers)under UV light one can see the lines guiding the pollinators to the nectar.

Thanks for t'he info Aart!
Never seen flowers under UV, but remember having read what you say. Maybe blue flowers have an the extra UV reflection thats cheats the sensor.
I insist that I find rather difficult to match blues. Lavender posted here is an example, in spite of the PP on a calibrated monitor, still doesn't match. I tried under flash and was even worst.
