I shot this fresh flower in June at Meadowlark Gardens in Vienna, Va.
This image says fresh to me because the lines in the flower are so well defined and plant’s colors are very vibrant..
Interestingly, I did not use a black backdrop on this photo. It was late in the afternoon and I underexposed the file slightly to kill the background and highlight the flower.
It was shot with a 60mm macro. Thanks for reading.
