    Wow Harmon!

    I love the all the angles on this flower!

    Now, I have a question --as I'm still trying to understand brightness and all. Are the stamen's white or green the closer one gets to the center of the flower? I've found that when I get up close to a flower the colors seem to change with the less light my eye is allowed to perceive. Does that make sense?

    In other words, at a distance of even a few inches, the camera and my eye see something as being whiter than it actually is because of the light reflecting off of it. (I think)

    Thanks!

    Hi ggt, they were more white. I used a reflector and shot with a sigma 70-200mm 2.8. Thanks.
