Pink Cyclamen 3

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 29 January 2009 in Plant & Nature.

I found this Cyclamen at Longwood Gardens Conservatory several weeks ago. The main difference between it and mine is that Longwood's had more little bits of dirt on it, which meant more cleaning up of the image.

Natural light, macro lens, tripod.

Ed Heaton from United States

Very Pretty Anita! Friendly comment, the image would be stronger as it appears in the small thumbnail. Full frame flower no edges... (just my thought)

@Ed Heaton: Great suggestion. Thanks!!

Kerri from United States

WOW Anita.....this one blew me away! Stunning!

Nice splash of color brightening my icy world. I agree, however, with the comment about a crop that would match the thumbnail image as yet another possibility for the original image.

This is a beautiful shot! I love the soft colors and gentle curves. I think it would be even better if you cropped in a bit and eliminated the background. But either way it's great!

@Jen: Thanks for your comments and your suggestion. I will do so.

Paul Michko from Exton, PA, United States

Very Georgia U'Keefe, Anita. I love the lines and subtle shades of pink. Marvelous composition.
