Up

For this week’s challenge, take a moment to look up…
—WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

I have been experimenting with my point of view when photographing flowers—choosing to look up rather than down. What do you think about this approach?

    Looking up works very well in this picture, I love the light that is shining through the rose. I would say this experiment is a success, an invitation to go on.

    I think it is a good thing, to experiment with different angles and light.

    I love flower photos in this perspective, regardless of translucency. However, it really added to it.

    At first the image didn’t speak to my but the I saw the translucent pedals and leaf contrasted with the blue sky – excellent photo

      Thank you, Abrie. I think that the translucent property of the petals “makes” the photo.

    Purely radiant! Love how you caught the sun in the corner of the frame, and the translucence of the petals.

      Hey, WG—I’m happy to hear from you again and glad that you like the photo. Having the rose bush in a raised bed was a great help when I decided to get low and look up.

    Works great the way the light gets in. Love the rays off the petals!

      Thanks, Carol. It reminds me of light through an umbrella, or a lampshade.
