Hmmm, today pitch black, day-black

I'm missing something but I do like the first photo along with everyone else. The fifth is pretty cool too, but I think you lost a little from posting them as a college. I bet if you took your time and framed each one they would all do well by themselves.

lol it was cloudy and i closed the blinds, so there wasn't much light, i could see, but not enough to focus with

i had a system going,
i'd turn on a lamp to focus(manual of course )
then i'd turn it off press the remote to take the picture (8 second exposure) and then shine the flashlight from different directions.

was in there for like an hour

I, on the other hand, like numbers 4 and 5. 4 with it's dark intense drama appeals to me and I like 5 because of the extremes, very light to dark. I agree with Dale try shining a light through a flower or better yet several led spots behind, one spot trained on each flower. (Isn't that cool, I can spend your money really well.)

Wonderful project. It looks like you had fun while producing some very nice pictures. A gold star to you.

thanks

actually i did shine it underneath and behind, that is y they seem to be glowing, i'll have to post one that "glows" more

funny thing is, my mom likes number 7 the best, even though the highlights are burnt
she likes the "purpleness" of it i think

this shot you can see the shine underneath more, kinda glows orange, even though the flowers were red
