I did a little experiment tonight with one of my wife's house plants that has just bloomed. The white flowers are lit with a yellow floodlight.





Added a warming filter in post processing. I'm not sure I like the yellow, but I was pleased overall with the way the setup worked.

Hi Paul

Interesting series, especially the colour you've chosen and the smooth background becomes a pattern in the last photo (when in focus).

Nice... something different

Paul,

Very nice sequence of photos of a Spathiphyllum. Responds well to the challenge. I might have elected not to use a yellow flood light since I personally prefer the original white of the Spathiphyllum

Aloha

I agree with what has already been said. The yellow lighting is too much! As with Selvin, I would much prefer to see the white flowers. You got the selective focus spot on, however.

I agree with both you and Cal. I used the challenge photo as an experiment in working with various colors of floods, flashes, and post-processing filters. The original white yielded a much more beautiful photo of the flower, but the background didn't work well for the challenge description, so I went with the yellow.
