“Simple Beauty”

“Simple Beauty”

“Nature is pleased with simplicity. And nature is no dummy”
― Isaac Newton

A very simple subject today, a single carnation blossom. I’ve actually avoided photographing it as I felt I could not bring out the texture of the ruffled blossom. But, in the right light and with a bit of patience, I was able to produce an image that I was pleased with.

This is what I would classify as a mid-range macro shot. Really a 1:1, since it filled the viewfinder frame as I saw it. Getting any closer would have, in my opinion, taken away from the image. I’m still learning the finer touches of macro photography, but good composition is a key element for my in all my images, large or small. Hopefully, this one is pleasing to you as well?
