Clover in Bottle

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 30 September 2008 in Plant & Nature.

I was experimenting with a slightly high-key effect. If i were to do it again, I would use a different bottle, a clear one. Taken indoors with window light; background is white foamboard.

Nicely done! I can see the photo using a clear bottle, but I like this one with the warm brown of the bottle and the high key of the flowers.

If you hadn't told us it was an "experiment" we would have never known. Nice presentation. I like the simplicity of the white background. And, clover....common clover. You've made it look very special and beautiful.

I think a clear bottle would have been incredible! Try it! This presentation is just beautiful... experiment successful!

I agree with your assesment, Anita. This looks great, but with a clear bottle it would be incredible. The frowers have such a illustration look to them. Like out of one of those flower identifying books. Fantastic, I really want to see the clear bottle one.

I would also like to see this with a clear bottle.. But I would also like to see the brown bottle with maybe a yellow flower just to see the difference.. Looks like you are having some fun!!!!

Beautiful still life. Love the transparency of the bottle..and the stark white background.

Lovely arrangement, beautiful flowers and great contrasts. Now that you mentioned the clear bottle, I think you are correct. Still a great job composing this shot, very unique.

I actually like the amber bottle. I think it makes an interesting contrast to the pastels and greens.

Fun experiment. The amber bottle might be a nice contrast with white or yellow flowers.
