Amaryllis in the Round

For Flash of Red B&W theme this week focused on nature. It took a while to figure out how to photograph to show all six blooms. Unfortunately, Jim walked by with his iPhone far too ready - decided to post it for fun: https://365project.org/taffy/the-also-ran-ph/2020-02-02

@milaniet He actually is good about asking permission (we both have agreed to that) so it was fine. I cropped out my head though, to focus on the camera which I thought was better for many reasons!

Oh! It’s fabulous!
February 3rd, 2020  
Wow what an amazing capture of so many blooms! Never seen one with six before or not all out at the same time! Brilliant idea to take the shot from above! Love it!

This is so pretty. It looks like a pencil sketch.

I just love the symmetry and high key beauty of this.
February 3rd, 2020  
PS - it might be interesting to shoot this from above while it's on a dark surface, but who knows? I really like this view!
February 3rd, 2020  
beautiful - I agree a dark background could be striking
February 3rd, 2020  
lovely
February 3rd, 2020  
Great high key effect, fave!
February 3rd, 2020  
Well worth getting this pov - great symmetry and high key execution , I love the gentle monotones and to me a dark background would be too stark and would spoil the whole effect ! fav
February 3rd, 2020  
Nicely composed and sensitively edited.
February 3rd, 2020  
I love the pov. Well thought out

No, tried this with mine, but yours is much more upright! Mine leans over at a frightening angle and I haven't been able to capture all four flowers in a meaningful way, but at least I got three the other day! Lovely.

It was all worth it Taffy - these lines and curves, without any colours, are just delightful. :)

@rosiekerr @beryl Found your comment about the dark background interesting as I'd photographed it both ways. Will post the dark one tonight and curious to see what you think. I preferred the lighter background in the end.

Beautiful shot, fabulous pov
February 4th, 2020  
love all the detail and prefer this high key version
