    This is a very unusual looking plant. It looks like they are flower buds that haven’t opened yet and the red stems are outstanding! Nice capture!


  2. Hi Joe:

    WoW! Can’t think of a better word at this moment. Thank you Joe for showing us beauty in a superlative manner. I noticed that you used the Fuji X-30 and smiled. I own one too, but it doesn’t know as much photography as yours. πŸ™‚




    • Thank you very much Omar πŸ™‚ I shot this image in a greenhouse (Planting Fields Arboretum) on a slightly overcast day so the lighting was nice and even with no shadows. The X30’s are quick learners Omar πŸ™‚ I usually shoot in aperture priority mode so I can control the depth of field and use the exposure compensation dial to get my desired “look” in the image. I find that underexposing the image by -1/3 to -2/3 of a stop usually gives me my desired effect.


What do you think ? Let me know.
