“Gerbera Petal Abstract”

Looking for something a little different today, found this old file of a dahlia petal, I liked the abstract look and vivid colors in this. I like shooting this type of image very shallow and enhancing the form and colors of the petals, I tried shooting this bloom as whole and was never really satisfied with it, I think this type of flower looks better in more of an abstract view.

I shot this one with my 150 macro at f/2.8 with a ss of 1/4 second at iso 200, thanks for taking a look.

  3. What can I say? Absolutely beautiful Bernie. Very nice use of orange. I love the softness of some of the pettles and the blends that resulted.

  7. the colors are very refreshing here. deciding on how much DOF to use is always the part I struggle with on the macro lens.

  11. Yes, Bernie, you are quickly becoming “the flower guy.” Excellent image you got there. I am in love with the gradient levels of color in this one.

  18. This is fascinating. Probably one of those I should look at a couple of times however, it really is a beauty. I love the slice that petal makes at the lower edge of the page. That is really amazingly neat. Boy, my only problem I really wish I adored the color yellow. But I am wise enough to admire how much you do! Excellent work.

  21. Excellent job mate:

    I was very impressed with your clarity on the subject and how you unfocused everything else making the rest of us focus on the subject of your art. Very skillfully done!
    Kudos to you!
