Jacob's Ladder

I have seen Jacob's Ladder as as a house plant, but this one was growing wild at the Howell Wetlands. I guess all plants are wild until we take them into our homes.

some of them are still wild when we take them into our homes :confused:

This is such a beautiful shot, great clarity, angle, colour, lighting, need i go on? :+favlove:

Great detail once again.
I like the composition in this shot, but I do wonder if it would have been even better with the top stem coming right out of the corner.

Maybe, but I think that might be too symmetrical.

Good shot Larry, The flower stands out well. I also like that fact that you used the same color in the frame as in the flower. I often do the same, I think it can help bring things out in a pic.

The quality of your photos is amazing. Do you use any programs like Neat Image? The color and clarity in this are just striking. Very good capture. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for your nice comment. I live in Photoshop. If Photoshop can't do it, it can't be done.

Absolutely. Some of my best flowers were "wildflowers." Nice how they cross each other, giving more depth and structure. :)

Wow. Very clear and crisp. The color is amazing! It's so vibrant and vivid. I like that the subject is offcentre, since centering is overused. I am not sure of the frame though. I would keep the color to match with the flower, but I would change its shape to be more simple. But then again I am a minimalist. Lol. Excellent work.

Thank you for your nice comment. Don't let your minimalism stop you from appreciating complexity. There is enough space for both and much more. But you are right that a frame should not detract from the image.

Thank you for your suggestion. I will try to incorporate more complexity into my images next time for more variety.
