[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another macro of a tiny flower that grows wild during summer months around Shimla, Himachal Pradesh. How small it is can be judged from the size of pine needles close behind it in the background
At the time I shot it in the evening, I was able to catch the slanting sunlight on only three of its five petals. I did not wish to use the flash because that would have flattened the true color and texture of this delicate flower.

Hi Ram,

Nice attaempt, a fairly good picture, Using flash is ok if you use it for only fill in.. setting the flash exposure manually will do most of the time try from 1/16 output its more of trial and error!!
