I was doing some yard work in our garden. It’s great to have rose blossoms in late November, and the complex curvilinear shapes of this Dreamweaver called out to me. I snipped the flower, brought it inside, and photographed it straight down. I used a daylight balanced light box for the backlighting, and combined four exposures to extend the dynamic range of the composition.
[Nikon D300, 100mm f/2 Karl Zeiss macro lens, four exposures at 1 second, 2 seconds, 4 seconds, and 8 seconds combined in Photoshop, all exposures at f/22 and ISO 100, tripod mounted.]
