Splash of Color

A field of flowers seen in Denver, CO. I spent some time in this area taking a variety of shots with different compositions - from macros to wide-angle. It's good practice for novice photographers to take a subject and takes lots of shots in different light, angles, formats, compositions, closeup and far away. It's a great way to see what works and why.

Be sure to visit Mellow Yellow Monday!

Russ, I think you are an exceptional photographer but this one is not working for me... my eyes just don't know where to go here.

You are so lucky to have all those flowers. I found it hard to focus on the picture, a bit like one of those 3D images that were on the go a few years back

Russ said...

Thanks for your honest opinions! It really does mean a lot!

Try staring at it from about a foot, squint your eyes, and, uh, maybe, stand on one leg? ;)

Those bits of yellow
in rainbow-colored field?
Castoffs from the sun!

I feel down while standing on one leg squinting, but it didn't help.
I do agree about getting multiple shots and perspectives on the same scene. I do that and end up with a lot of not so good picutes. But once in a while I get lucky. I respect your desire to become a better photographer, and you are good. Wish I had that much focus. Someday, with a better camera.
