    A lucky one and an obligatory first/last flower shot ever

    I was going to get some nature stuff during golden hour but got screwed over by rednecks driving 30 *** under the speed limit. Instead, I got these.

    EDIT: I realized I need to clean up the fringing on the trees in the first one. Good thing I haven't published this anywhere yet.

    Not too keen on the focus of the flower, would have personally tried to focus the entire plant rather than just the foremost sections, though I'm not sure if that was your intention or not. I'm really liking the lighting on the first one though, and the contrast is fantastic. Of course black and white images will always have some form of contrast, but I love the small differences from the blacks to the greys to the whites, it creates some subtley I don't see too often in non-color images.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    I think the second one is focused that way intentionally. It works out just fine. I love the second one. It focuses on the main, important aspect of the flower. Really nice one

    I don't think it was. It's a nice photo (I really like the composition), but he's at a really wide aperture, which is why the entire flower is not in focus. Common problem when shooting things up close. Shooting wide open isn't always necessarily better. Still a good photo. I would just like all of those buds to be in focus.

    Yeah I see what you mean. If the buds around the right side of the flower were more in focus then it would have been a better photo

    My god people. It was getting dark so I had to use a wide aperture. There wasn't any artistic pondering going on about how much of it should be in focus. I'll be honest and say I didn't even look through the viewfinder for that one.

    It's okay. It turned out to be a great picture either way
