Leucadendron flower

Took a few photos of this, then changed the angle and against a darker background, but the light changed with a closing in storm and suddenly the flower stood out in the different light. A lot to learn about various lighting situations, still a bit mystifying how it all works
Now where are the petals this flower! Amazing light and colour!

Great shot. Finding the angle that puts your subject in the light with a dark background is a great way to create dramatic photos. I have found you can do this with flowers by creating a shadow behind the subject, often using a companion to do it.
