    Pretty, like the petals are reaching out towards me. What a brilliant orange, too.

    • Yeah, this really isn’t the right film for this kind of color (too saturated and contrasty) but I think it turned out alright. Thanks.

  5. I love the soft vibrance of this photo…the focal point and depth of field make this one especially beautiful.

  6. For some reason, I usually hate marigolds! I know, I know…there’s so many more things in life to hate than marigolds….BUT, I like this one!

    • I hate marigolds, too; they can be a pain to photograph (Velvia 50 + marigolds usually = bad news). Oh, and they’re notorious for their bad hair days.

  7. I really like the “in your face” color here. As I said before, I think your black and white photos are great but the color one always seem to just leap off the screen in contrast to the black and whites. Keep mixing them up!

    • I sure will. Glad you think the approach is working. 🙂
