Default Dwarf Larkspur

Found this out on a hike today. The forest floor was full of them.

I can't give you a critique Mugmar - not experienced enough! But I can let you know that I've only just this minute seen this post and I've visited "Today's Posts" quite often over the past three days (checking to see if any comments have been made on my last two posts - but sadly, no.) I wonder if there has been a 'glitch' that has delayed some postings?

BTW did you take any shots of the forest floor 'carpet'? These little plants are so colourful that they should make quite a display en masse.

Cheers

Bernice

i see it mugmar if you would have just moved to the left a little more when taking this shot it would have added so much more as you wouldnt have got the flower in the background , but got it with the darker area making all thos petals really pop out

Hey simple - that should be a Rule: Be aware of your background! I must remember that.

Cheers

i agree with simple here. if you would have framed it against the darker part of the background it would have shown up better.

the dof is good, its sharp, just not enough contrast leaves it lost in the purple.

Thanks Bernice, Simple and Dustin,
I'm still trying to figure out this wildflower shooting thing, so thank you all for the advice.
The forest floor was covered with hundreds of this flowers which made it difficult to shot without getting one in the background. I will definitely check out the background closer when doing this type of shot.

I tried to capture the "carpet" of these flowers on the floor but with no luck.

Dwarf Larkspur.....I was expecting to see a Munchkin, but low and behold its a flower. And a nice one too. All very good except for the part picked out by Dustin.
