a photo turns out way different and better than you think it will. This is one of those times!

Thank you! It turned out way better than I ever thought it would.
I was experimenting with some exposure ideas that I had and trying to take a photo of one of my wife's favorite wild flowers....... The Trillium. I noticed this odd ball Trillium that only has 2 petals instead of the normal 3. It was stuck in a dark corner under a tree and a bunch of brush, so I got down on my belly and crawled back to it with my trusty 17-40 f/4 L and I tried out my exposure idea.

Camera Maker: Canon
Camera Model: Canon EOS 40D
Lens: EF17-40mm f/4L USM
Image Date: 2011-04-12 15:07:39 -0700
Focal Length: 40.0mm
Aperture: f/4.0
Exposure Time: 0.0020 s (1/500)
ISO equiv: 200
Exposure Bias: none
Metering Mode: Spot
Exposure: aperture priority (semi-auto)
White Balance: Auto
Flash Fired: No (enforced)
Orientation: Normal
Color Space: Adobe RGB (1998)
Photographer: Richard M. Dick Raymond Jr.

Everything worked out pretty good and my wife loves the photo!

Dick

Nice shot. Looks like it may be hanging on your living room wall soon.
