    Very beautiful and well illuminated shot. I totally favourited it at first glance.

    Very clever :) I thought that you might have artificially lit this one, then again I should know better than to underestimate your sense of timing ;)

      I used some cloth to manipulate the background shadows, so the relative lighting across the scene is a fabrication to an extent but the light is real. I saw the light hitting the rose in my garden from inside the dinning room and got my gear and rushed out just in time ♥

      Not so easy out here in the desert! I could grow roses though.

    One of the clearest shots .. I like the focus and the soft lighting .. the background must have some awesome shadows to get this so well captured.

      Thank you :]

      I always take a black dropcloth with me, a yard or so of a black silky fabric. Can use it in cases like this to refine the background shadows by blocking the light [also can be used to eliminate bounced light, in other cases]. Does not take much room in a camera bag, always worth having one near to hand imo!

      The two go hand in hand, the purpose and the process, need them both to work out :] Thanks

      And how sad is it that I've only recently come to the realization that creating with a purpose that extends beyond aesthetic appeal is far more fulfilling. A late revelation, but not too late at least c:

      Thought of this relevant quote, this morning, always makes me say "ha!" at the wit :p

      "The artist should not only paint what he sees before him, but also what he sees within him. If, however, he sees nothing within him, then he should also omit to paint that which he sees before him. Otherwise his pictures will resemble those folding screens behind which one expects to find only the sick or even the dead." — Caspar David Friedrich

      Thanks, the narrow shaft of back lighting was really strong looking as it hit this in my garden and only lasted for a few minutes, I was lucky to get a shot of it!
