Hibiscus

Here's a Hibiscus from last Fall that I was playing with today. This was a big flower and I used a Nikon 35mm f1.8 lens at f11 for the shot. Didn't need a macro on this one. The flower is about 8" across -Bruce :)

That a gorgeous shot. It looks like the middle glows. The DOF is great.

Clint - I cheated a little on it and used the Color Efex Pro 3 filter that brightens the center and darkens the outside. It gives the same effect as if I used a small reflector on just the center part. I actually shot the image in the shade, so it was a little flat to start with - Bruce

I guess that's "software" filter as in post processing? It really adds to the picture. Gives it an almost 3D quality. It's really a great picture.

I like the middle glow personally, that's one of my favorite flowers and we still have a few blooming here.
