“Medusa’s Petals”

Shot this funky Gerbera daisy the other day, I tried a whole subject shot of the image and wasn’t happy,  so I scaled it down to an abstract and liked the overall results.  After viewing it on the computer I thought the petals held a slight resemblance to the Mythical creature Medusa,  at least I thought so, I shot this at 2.8, 1/2 second at iso 160. Thanks for taking a look.

    I am amazed not only by this photo – but also by your ability to produce one fantastic image after another. (Question; so have you sold your soul to anyone with a pitchfork lately?) {okay…okay teasing.} Once again Bernie, amazing work. The color in this is amazing!

    Hey Bernie…this is sharp and bright. Gerbera daisies are wonderful, aren’t they? They last forever, too. Last winter I was so desperate for flowers, I went out and bought a big bouquet and really got some mileage out of them.

    Beautiful work, as always.

    Wonderful image! There is one thing that keeps jumping out to my eye thought…the edge of the petal sections that are in focus have this white edge to them. I’m not sure if you perhaps over sharpened the image before uploading or if that is just a digital display artifact. Not sure…but wanted to point it out to you. For some reason, that is the first thing that my eye jumps to.

    I enjoy your work, thanks for sharing! Keep up the great work.

    Bernie, I love this shot of the Gerber. It’s one of my favorite flowers to shoot. It has a look of fire almost. Also thank you for your comment on my site!
