Happy you like this study– a wonderful flower. Reply ↓ Steve Schwartzman January 17, 2019 • 6:58 pm Ia that an anemone? Reply ↓ Jane Lurie January 17, 2019 • 10:21 pm Hi Steve, No, it’s a Protea. It’s reddish in color. Reply ↓ lexklein January 17, 2019 • 6:14 pm Those little curled edges really pop in black and white, and the insides look almost bejeweled. You would have a field day in Hawaii, where even I (a non-flower photographer most of the time) could not stop aiming my camera at each little botanical treasure! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie January 18, 2019 • 12:07 pm Hi Lex, Thanks so much! I’m glad you like this in B&W- the Protea are quite beautiful in color, too, but I just loved the contrasts and details that the monochrome brought out. I have had a few field days in Hawaii with the incredible plants and flowers. It’s amazing. My favorite to photograph is the Plumeria. Such a beautiful flower. It’s great that you had such a wonderful time! Reply ↓ bluebrightly January 17, 2019 • 6:10 pm It’s as if the flower paused for you… Reply ↓ Jane Lurie January 18, 2019 • 12:03 pm Hi Lynn, I definitely felt a connection. Thank you for pondering….much appreciated. Reply ↓ D supp January 17, 2019 • 5:13 pm Exquisite ! Looks like beautiful pearls in the center. Happy New Year Jane ! Cheers! D Reply ↓ Jane Lurie January 18, 2019 • 12:01 pm Thank you, Diane. Yes, that’s a great way to describe it. Happy New Year and wonderful to hear from you. 🙂 Reply ↓ Eliza Waters January 17, 2019 • 4:55 pm Like a jewel in a crown! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie January 18, 2019 • 12:01 pm What a great description, Eliza. Thanks so much! Reply ↓ oneowner January 17, 2019 • 2:55 pm Beautiful shot, Jane. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie January 17, 2019 • 4:23 pm Thanks so much, Ken. Much appreciated. Reply ↓ Allan G. Smorra January 17, 2019 • 1:08 pm I feel like I am sneaking this look at the flower. The overall dark tone of the image works well with the edge outlines on the lighter-colored petals. Ω Reply ↓ Jane Lurie January 17, 2019 • 1:32 pm Thanks, Allan. I bit how I felt when I was photographing it. Happy you like the contrasts. Reply ↓ Detlef Gimbel January 17, 2019 • 1:05 pm Do you take jpgs direct out of the camera, or do you use Lightroom, Photoshop etc.? Beautyful light in this flower. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie January 17, 2019 • 1:34 pm HI Detlef, I always shoot in RAW and process my photos in LR before exporting as a JPEG to my blog. Glad you like this one– thank you! Reply ↓ Detlef Gimbel January 17, 2019 • 1:01 pm 👍 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie January 17, 2019 • 1:02 pm 😁Thanks, Detlef. Reply ↓ Love to hear what you think... Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
