Whoops, you might add a "little" teeny tiny bit of contrast to this one...I think it is a little too white !
The form, however, if I look very hard, is there, and it is very lovely !

This is a great serie Anita, and i think a nice tribute to your favorite photograph!

On my monitor it looks just right. I wouldn't change a thing. Very nice!

Another good image inspired by the photos of Ron van Dongen.

white on white - pretty bold......very subtle but beautiful.....the top petal cut off is a bit distracting though....

@Chris: Thanks, Chris. I went back and forth re. cropping that top petal, and I appreciate your opinion.
My word, these last three shots are really interesting, with such a good high key technique.

Beautiful again Anita. Very well handled for a high key image.

I think that this would be my favorite of the series. Very delicate and graceful. Nice work!

I like the delicate look this series has. This particular image is excellent for its fine gradation among the white tones. Top flight work.

Another gorgeous one! I love the extreme detail at the center of the flower, then the softness tapering off....Stunning!

Hi Anita, may I ask what do you use as a background? I saw the photo of your home studio but I wonder if you use a white sheet of paper, or some plastic sheet or white reflector or what. I tried white paper (both matt and glossy), pastic glossy sheet and never achieved brighter background than flower. Do you also use some additional light? A flash, a lamp?

@Tomas Turecek: What I've been using as a BG in these photos is a piece of white foam board. I believe I angled in towards the window. I once tried using extra light on the BG, and I believe it did work. But for these photos no extra light was used.
Here is another idea: When doing your RAW conversion play around with the exposure, temperature, tint, contrast, etc. settings. That might do the trick.
Your photos look wonderful!
Let me know.
Anita, the white cyclamen is lovely. You do nice work. I found your blog from your link on BPN.

@Julie Brown: Hi, Julie! Glad you found me. You must hang out at the bird forum at BPN. I've learned so much from the Macro forum! A great community over there.
Hi Anita. I am new to am3 as well as BPN and am finding it to be both educational and fun! I have read a lot in the bird forum and posted my first image in the macro forum last night.

@Julie Brown: AM3 is for fun and support and community. BPN is to grow and learn and community. Welcome to both!
wow! I'm blown away by this shot, Anita - it is powerful. and gorgeous, and very creative

Stunning high key image Anita. Love the soft elegant feeling, beautiful work as always.

This is daring and it works wonderfully. By the way, the crop doesn't bother me because the angle of the image is down and to the "end" of the flower. So keeping the top petal wouldn't really substantially improve that sense of visual movement, which is already successfully achieved with this crop. But I certainly don't know how to photograph flowers, so it's just a humble comment.

Amazing! What a beauty. Well done!!

The subtlety of this combined with the absolute detail is just stunning. Beautifully rendered!
