[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Scarlet Morning Glory( Ipomoea hederifolia )

I was visiting a cave temple near Bangalore, Karnataka last Sunday, and found this flower on the peak near to the entrance of the cave. It was too bright as it was 12AM. I used the settings little wrong, better focusing I could have achieved at a F-Stop of f/5.0.

Settings used,

Hand held,
No Fill/Flash,
Exposure time of 1/1250
F-Stop at f/2.7
Focal length 6mm
GIMP 2.6.8 for adding background

Hello Amal,

Flowers are a very difficult subject for take.
You did very well with a blur background.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Merhaba Amal,
Cok guzel bir cicek.Rengi itibari ile de ilgi cekici.Saygilar

Hy Amal
Still I am a fan of flower pictures, but now, in winter, you don't see many, so I am glad to see this one. I only know the blue and pinkish Ipomoea. I like the blurred bg and the strong color of the flower. Well done!
