Salsify 2 - nearly by handymaurice

Salsify 2 - nearly

This could have been so much better if I could clone out the stalk and leaf to the left - this is very much how I imagined the shot to be when in the field - but I did not look closely enough to remove all intrusions - have to go back!
holy moly! this is awesome. fav.

@francoise thank you so much - I went back this evening and took some more shots - hopefully without intrusions - I should upload after processing but still tryingto catch up posting and more importantly commenting

This is beautiful. I love the amazing structure of plants. You say you photographed this 'in the field', I find that so difficult because of the distractive back grounds. I love the white showing up the intricacies of this..big fav!

@Cherrill thank you for the comment - it was taken in a field of long grasses and wild flowers - there will be a number of shots from a series I have taken over a few days uploaded in due course - I had to get down on my belly in the grass to shoot upwards using a monopod with the sky as background - because of the grey sky and the colour of the seedhead - it immediately became devoid of much colour and I thought about B&W. I went back last evening and repeated the exercise although this time (with a different plant) I moved away intrusive leaves and stalks before I started!

Thank you for your reply. I understand the background now, must try to get down more and look up, if that makes sense!! Maybe I will never be able to get up again!!
