Notice about taking: I wanted to take a different and an unusual pose of this flower. I choosed a couple buds in a shadowside on the ground and I used a mirror to reflect the sunlight onto the flower bud. I selected spot metering mode and -1 step shutter. This is the result. I hope you enjoy it.

A very well composed pic. The BG allows the light cast on the subject to be more detailed and also more dramtic too.


This is sheer magic with your camera settings, Fevzi.
Marvellous image that hits one hard in terms of aesthetics.
TFS and regards.

Great composition of black and blue. Good sharpnes and details.
Well done


A fine, ephemeral looking composition of these Alpine squills against a dark BG Fevzi Bey, the underexposure gave the flowers a ghost-like appearance, good job indeed!
