Default White lilies

These were taken today at my summer cabin. The inlet of water is surrounded by trees, it is quite shady... wish I had more light to take better pictures. Hope these suffice for now.

I don't know, Ned. I think any more light might be to much, these look perfect on my screen!

Thanks! I was laying on my stomach by the water... every once and a while, a small shaft of sunlight would break through the trees...

I agree - white flowers are especially hard to photograph at any time, in bright light they can often look like a blown-out blob. These are really nice, well done! I prefer the first two, the third one has a bit too small a dof for my taste. I wouldn't change a thing on either of those two.

Really like nr2, and I don't see any problems with the light.

Thanks Ronny! I was just wondering if I gave it too much light... thanks for your kind comments, which only serve to take and process photos better.

All the best.

Ned

Light looks just right to me, and all are true floral art! #2 my favorite - close but not too close...

Hi Ned,

My vote is for #2, but only slightly over #1. I find the composition more pleasing.

The lighting is, IMO, very nice -- makes the pistils and stamens glow, yet neither these or the petals are blown out. There's a very fine balance.

Nice captures!

Scott
