Cyclamen 29

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 11 January 2011 in Plant & Nature.

I used pink scrapbooking paper as the background. Taken indoors with natural light. Very little post processing. I kept the stem long so the flower center would not be smack in the center of the image.

The paper is the perfect hue to accentuate the color of the petals.

Anita, I always love your cyclamens, but I think this is one of my favorites! I love the soft pink background, I love the longer stem, and the single petal hanging down (and your placement of it) is just perfection!! Beautiful shot!
