Flower Photo Competition 1 2013 : Entry Number 279

Judges Comment

What a positive photograph this is! Shooting against the sun is well very handled. The sun seems to be almost disappearing and the viewing point underlines this.

Photographers Comment

Thank you so much for this honor! My name is Clair, and I live in Virginia. This photo was taken a few years ago right after I pulled my first DSLR out of the box: an Olympus E620. After taking a few shots of these small flowers (they're only about 2 inches wide in person) I got the idea for this shot, which resulted in me laying face down, sprawled out in a mulch bed, haha.I really wanted to try and capture the way the sun transmitted through the petals. Although I still love to photograph flowers, dog photography and macro still lifes are my passion. Feel free to check out my flickr stream. Thanks Again!
