Re: Mario and Stephen

Thanks for the comments guys. The sun was cooperative enough to hide behind some light clouds for a bit to allow capturing the softness of the colors and gentle bouquet of lighting in the background. Later on I took a second image in full sun that presented an entirely different energy.

Stephen, I like the idea of the blooms "holding hands". But we know how technical you and I can be (especially you as I'm trying to wrap my head around your 5% thread), so the "holding hands" effect is actually due to the optics at 2.1°. The blooms were fairly well separated but joined by the compression of space at the long end of the lens. I chose to step back and go long both for this reason and to create the background bouquet. The long lens did create a problem as a constant light breeze kept the blooms moving, so I had to patiently hold the composition until they rested a bit.

Thanks again,
