“Spent” – Composition Is Key In Macro Photography.
This is a spent stamen from the flower of an azalea.
Everything seemed to fall into place on this day, and with this image.
The depth that already existed between the spent stamen and the fully extended stamens in the background, looked like little neon tubes glowing in the viewfinder.
The winds were calm, the lighting was wonderful for a change, the details were looking good, … but it was the composition that made the day!
The plamp was used from the tripod to the stem of the flower to help steady it even more.
