Simplicity is what makes this photograph standing out from the crowed. It is superb in its own way, and we love it for that exact reason. Thank you for submitting this image to I-Shot-It!

Rebecca Kempton Greytown, New Zealand Canon 7D with 50mm 1.8mm lens I had picked this lily from our garden and played with different light to capture its simple form. I held it up to the setting sun with one hand and camera in the other hand. I loved how it lit the sillouette and how the dark shadow filled the front and the bright light shone through the outer edges. I used Lightroom to convert it to black and white and increased the contrast of the blacks and white.
