untitled flowers 14
EARLY SPRING FLOWERS SERIES 14 of 16 -- this series is likely to be interrupted on various days.
WINNER OF THE DAY: Michael Skorulski, who says these are lilies. Thanks Michael! Thanks also to Howard F. the great flower IDer, for specifying these are Day Lilies and providing the scientific name, hemerocallis spp.. And to Twelvebit & his wife for confirming the Day Lily ID.
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.
coming back to photoblogging after some time away; trying to post a new photo every couple weeks.
Comments, feedback, criticism, suggestions, etc. are always appreciated. Thanks!
