Oh, this is lovely! All that blackness brings out the colour and fragility of the flower. Beautiful.

Pseud? Ahm.. care to qualify your esteemed critique Mr./Ms. Anonymous :-)?

Now what did I mean when I said pseud… well u know there is a ‘perfectly imperfect’ quality about it… the solitary fallen flower, the dried leaf appropriately placed around it, and the back of the flower facing… u know its all wrong, yet meant to be right… do I make sense, I wonder? :)

But honestly I do think its fab, but just that the thought stuck me :)

And esteemed critique… hardly that… Just one bored, anonymous entity merging into the wall-paper :)

Good luck…

Hi! I guess everything "fell" in place for this one - the flower came from the tree above and they usually fall upside down - the leaf too is from the same plant (see the picture titled "Lattice" that I posted today - it supplied all the ingredients for this picture). The glass canopy and the shady trees above it created the right light conditions. I just happened to be there at the right place at the right time.

Yes it could have been contrived. Yes I've known professional photographers who go around with hair-spray to get their "dew-drops" right. I for my part, won't even move a single petal - digitally or otherwise. For that takes the fun away, that intimacy with nature away, the thrill of having discovered that perfect setting for a perfect shot outside your five storey office building in the middle of a busy commerical district away.

Ironically, withing moments of taking this picture, the janitor came and swept off everything except the light and shade away (which she couldn't have).

Thanks for visiting! Hope you'll come again! :-)

Cheers,
Deepak
