untitled flowers 10 (camellia)
EARLY SPRING FLOWERS SERIES 10 of 16 -- this series is likely to be interrupted on various days.
WINNER OF THE DAY: MaryB -- and she hasn't even seen the post yet. I came across a photo of the same flower at Jen's Eye and she had the same question, which was first answered by MaryB: it's a camellia! Thanks a lot to Jen and MaryB!
first person who can correctly tell me what kind of flower this is wins (a thank you and a link to your blog is the best i can do for a prize). i don't know the answer (horrible with flower names) which is why i would like to find out.
from looking at some of your blogs i can tell that not everyone is so fortunate to have flowers blooming in their parts of the world now and many are itching for spring time, so i decided to walk around and photograph different flowers. i haven't had a chance to do much of any processing on these aside from a few minutes in picasa. hope you enjoy them!
any tips on photographing flowers? composition is especially much harder than it looks in nature and i already noticed some of the bright reds seem to get a sort of glare on them and some of the lighter ones got washed out. apologies in advance if some of them didn't come out very sharp, etc. there are some i might normally have thrown out but i also wanted to find out what these different flowers are called.
Comments, feedback, criticism, suggestions, etc. are always appreciated. Thanks!
