Tidy-tips bud
« on: March 16, 2012, 12:42:41 AM »

Hi!

Here is a photo I took tonight, because it was too rainy to go out and take any sunset pics (and I couldn't get free in time to take any forest pics).  It's of the bud of a tidy-tips wildflower, Layia platyglossa, family Asteraceae.  Hope you all don't think it's too over-done.  C&C appreciated!

I think it is a nice image, does not look overdone to me; lighting is very interesting.

Good colors and detail, and I like to see radial symmetry in a square frame.  I don't think it's overdone at all.  In the larger version, some background elements are very faintly visible, and I wonder if it would be better as entirely black with no detail.  I also wonder about the amount of empty black space.  I tried a version with the edges much closer to the plant, and I personally liked the more fully filled frame.
