This is quite pretty. I wanted to try to grow Calla lilies this year, but then some that were planted previously, a few years ago, exploded...to put it lightly. So I decided against more, but this shot makes me regret that. So pretty! I love the color of it :)

I was kind of expecting a full on macro view of the stamen when I clicked on the DA link you posted on FB... I'm happy to be disappointed - this perspective is wonderful; superior to the tighter shot I was expecting, by far... Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Hal! I didn't know you were on DA. It CAN be zoomed to view it better but I wanted the wider perspective. :)

Glad you like it!

Only been here a couple weeks - still not entirely sold on the site, though it is growing on me...

I agree completely. The wider view is superior to the narrower macro I was expecting...

I post some of my model stuff here because of the unlimited space & the wider reach to some fan groups that other sites, but MAINLY I use it for my nature, landscapes, etc... stuff I CAN'T post at MI & similar sites.

I also use the print feature for my nature stuff, and it gives me a good pool of resources to find collaborators for my digital art projects.

Yeah - it was the print feature that attracted me to DA. One day I may even be able to take advantage of it, but that time isn't here yet...

I was looking at your proposed digital collaboration topic earlier... It's an interesting approach to creating some unique artworks. I'm not quite there yet, but perhaps in another year or so we might collaborate on a similar project...

I like the contrast between hard and soft edges. That really helps with focal point and depth. The contrast bewtween the complementary colors adds a great visual pop!

Thanks David! I am working on a triptych of this same lily (different buds on it) that i think will rock.

I have to say, this is one of the better "nature" photographs I've seen at DA.
The subject's color range is fantastic!

Great camera, btw.
