Weekly Photo Challenge : Saturated – The Color of Flowers

I thought I would post a couple more images to go with this week’s  saturated theme.

The purple flower above was shot a couple of years ago.  Normally I would  be going for a deeper depth of field  on flower shot. The symmetry on this plant was so striking I thought a lower depth of field would really bring out the design of the flower as  almost the entire background drops off into nothing. It is sort of an aerial shot of a flower. (Please see more text and another flower photo below)

For the yellow rose photo below I took almost the opposite approach. I used a very lower depth of field to create a more dreamy look  while still maintaing the shape of the petals and bringing out the shadows between them.
