Series of FOUR Images and a panoClick the orange series icon under the image to see the rest of the series, and click the pano icon for the LV
We have had our money's worth from the dahlias this year. As you see this was shot in July, but they are still blooming now at the end of October. I guess the first frost will kill them off. It's still very mild here, but North winds are on the way at the week-end.
As with most of my flower images these were taken on the kitchen table in a light tent using window light. The small petals came out differently from how I expected. It just shows that we maybe don't always look so closely until we get the camera out.
I do like the even and softish light that your light tent has given this flower. This looks like a group of red tubes and if you hadn't of said anything I am not sure what it could be. I really like the pano or LV the even light and then that slight burnish of light on the inner portion of the flower, beautiful. Bravo, this is a keeper and could be used as a decoration in a room.
Stunning! The red is gorgeous so rich. I am not going to choose all four are a delight for the eye. I thought maybe as interior of the flower it could go into the theme but you chose not too, maybe you’ve used your quota.

I hadn't thought of the theme, but in any case I already have 5 posts.
All of them are fantastic, a very attractive series! I could see them hanging in a fairly narrow corridor all of them close to each other but not too close, maybe with a black frame or maybe a white frame around each of them. I think this would look great with not too much light but some natural light. Inspiring material, Kath. One of these days I get my little tent out too and do some chili images. I have dried some for this purpose.

Thanks for the fave. Much appreciated!
when I was a kid it was usual to see these flowers in the gardens of my hometown, now they are gone. probably we can't see no one.
UK has lots of fantastic things to see, but I confess what surprised me more was the flowers. I never had visited a country with so much flowers everywhere. so different especies, colors, shapes, quality. every corner is adorned with them. I presume the constant sprays of rain and the fresh temperatures of summer created this aspect, mixed, of course, with the intense love of british people to the gardens. I visited the country in september, I can't imagine how it would be in the spring...
marvelous this macro where we can appreciate the internal shapes of the flower. congratulations.
Beautiful series, each one of them is as good as the others and can be the main post. The pano really allow us more details. Such a lovely color with velvety and silky quality. I can almost feel the smooth texture of each petals. What a wonderful series and inspirational images. Makes me want to go out to local garden and do some shooting.
I'm going through the gallery a bit. I saw this and just knew it was you. I love them, all of them. My personal favorite is #3. I just love the close up and all the details and the variations of red. Red is my favorite color, as you might remember. In any case, this is a truly beautiful series.
