Portfolio Book Image: Pink

Added on by J.D. Magers.

And we're on to the next subject.  Fauna.  When I saw it, my eye was immediately drawn to this flower.  The brightness of the pink against the muted green leaves just drew me in.  I also really, really like how the leaves form three lines that go right up to the subject.  There is also a lot of little details in the hair like structures that form the basis of the flower.  It kind of reminds me of cilia, but that's just geeky science talk.

Unfortunately, I don't know what the name of this flower is.  I shot it down in Florida over one of our Christmas vacations.  I think it was in the Palm Beach area.  I remember it being a cloudy day, which made the mid day light really muted.  It's probably why this shot works so well.  If it had been a sunny, spectral light day, I don't think I would have liked this image nearly as much.  I might not have seen it honestly.  I did though, and that's all that matters...
