Out of all of the photographs I took on the trip to the Botanic Gardens, this one happens to be my absolute favorite. I love the contrast of the light pink rose, bright blue sky, and hint of white clouds, to the darkness of the leaves of the flowers and trees in the back. I also love how the rose looks almost “majestic” up so high in the sky. Also how the rose is the main object in focus, how you can’t really make out the trees in the background, almost like a silhouette.

This picture was a total surprise for me. I had happen to come across a random spider in it web and even though I din’t have a really good camera, I didn’t think I’d catch the spider in the image. When I got home and was finally able to look at my pictures, I came across this and not only did the spider appear in the image, but so did the web! I love this picture because of what a treat it was and what a surprise it came out to be.
This is my favorite picture because its in a perspective view which towards the camera the pathway is wide apart but further away from the camera the pathway gets smaller. Also, the greenness of the grass and trees are shown very clearly which gives it a nice and clean photograph. I also like that it gives a sense of emotion; loneliness, darkness and a never ending path.
This picture is my favorite of all the pictures that i have taken because of the focus on the flower in this shot. The amount of focus allows you to view the flower in detail with good lighting. In addition i feel that the blurred background of mostly green and darker colored flowers and plants really help the bright pink flower stand out from everything else.
Out of the whole bunch this was my best shot. I did crop it a little, the bee was centered and i decided to crop out part of the top and right side of the frame. In my opinion what makes this shot most interesting is how the flower is leaning, it makes it seem like the bee is actually pushing the flower down. The light is coming from behind the bee which gives it a interesting halo effect and the sharp focus removes the background and lets the viewers eye completely focus on the bee.
This is my favorite photo that I took at the gardens. I love it, for one, because I was able to catch the spiderweb. When I saw this beautiful, huge spiderweb, I was thrilled. I took several pictures of it but on the camera screen at the gardens it didn’t look like I was successful. When I saw them on the computer, I was thrilled!! This was the best one, and I love the way the sun is coming through the web. (It is easiest to see if you click on the image, it will come up full size, it is difficult to see at this size.)
Out of the
35 million 400-ish pictures I took, this one is by far my favorite.
I even pulled some Photoshop voodoo and added some saturation to it, then proceeded to make it my Wallpaper Of The Week. Maybe even the month, in this case.
Aside from the contrast between the vibrant oranges and greens versus the more understated neutrals, it just makes me think of a greenhouse in some fairy tale castle. I think it’s the column and the vines that seem to wrap around it.
Also, I just have a fondness for macro shots. There’s something about them that just looks so pro to me. Same thing with bokeh.
After applying some Photoshop hex magic, I ended up with this:
Which looks even prettier, in my opinion.
