Top pic. Sharp, well composed, lighting spot on, great background and the few solitary drips make me think of the fresh aroma of the countryside after the rain. I suppose another contrast could be that the majority of people dislike rain, but without it, we wouldn´t see the wonders of nature such as this!

Tom, I love this photo. There's contrast of color for sure, but the contrast that leaps out at me is that of form and way of life. The lily and the daisy are such different flowers, the former opening showily in daylight but shrinking into itself each evening, and not lasting too very long either. The daisy, on the other hand, though simpler in form and just plain white, is the stronger of the two, facing the night as well as the day. I suppose a person needs to be intimate with these two flowers (which grow all around me) to think of this aspect, but since you photographed them, you probably thought of similar qualities yourself. Again, excellent picture!

Default Art Show Quality

Tomsch:

Besided the contrast between the two subjects of the image, the execusion is excellent.

If this is the level of your work, you could make a living selling your images on the art show circuit.

This is a beautiful image, good selection of subject, great color depth, razor sharp image to show details and good composition.

Well Done, Well Done,

rod

Vito, these were in a planting bed behind my home and were photographed as they grew. I mix the shasta daisys with the lilies to keep blooms in the bed other wise when the lilies were done there would be nothing to look at, besides I enjoy the color contrasts between the two. This was taken afer a brief summer shower late in the day, that is why the light is so flat. I used the Sigma 180mm macro, It produces good results and is a very sharp lens.

Great contrast, do they naturally grow like that together.
