This lilly was growing in the front yard of a home I walked past each day. I like the contrast of the white petals and the black background.

|Taken:||Sunday, 2nd August, 2009|
|Focal length:||40 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1/30 sec|
|Notes:||I shot this in manual model. I metered off the back of my hand, then opened on stop. I held a large piece of black foam core behind the flower to get the black background. Post processing was minimal. A levels adjustment, minor sharpening and conversion to black and white.|
