Ok...don't ask me why I did this one...I had some tulips and I had this rock so naturally...
Coming back to AM3 after a long hiatus. I hope to be more active in the coming months.
looking forward to the big project you mentioned yesterday.
interesting set up in today's shot.

Makes a wonderful impression, don't ask me why :)
27 Mar 2008 4:21pm
i like it. great light, color, detail. and it's almost like the flower is growing, against all odds, out of a crack in the rock or something.
27 Mar 2008 4:58pm
Nice composition and so creative :)
27 Mar 2008 6:05pm
awesome photo. love the lighting and the contrast as the title suggests.
27 Mar 2008 7:28pm
@ankush vimawala: Thanks.
If we can't ask why then how come? Well thought out and executed.
27 Mar 2008 7:53pm
@Monte Stevens: Thanks.
The answer is because it was there, I was bored, an it made sense at the time. Lol!
Beautiful composition. The lighting is perfect!

27 Mar 2008 9:41pm
@Tse Min: Thanks.
Vraiment jolie cette photo,bravo

Lovely! Very effective. The smooth, soft, bright flower against the rough, hard, dull rock make an excellent combination. As Lidia said, it has a Japanese feel.
28 Mar 2008 12:09am
LOL!! and not at the post but at your little narrative.. Of course there was a progression to this... that's how artists think!! Like the combination too!! I gotta get my butt in gear and try some studio lighting... wonderful lighting, Laurie.

It's fun and you don't need to get all pro stuff like I have to do it on a small scale like this. You can go to a Home Center store and buy "garage" lights, 2 or 3 of them, you know the lights with the silver reflectors and clamps used for working. Then get ceramic socket inserts for safety (you'll need higher wattage bulbs and this will enable the garage light to accept them safely) and then you can either buy relatively inexpensive photoflood bulbs or even a higher wattage (200 watts or higher) standard bulbs. Get some white paper that comes in a roll from Staples or another office supply store and you got it. Then all you need is a way to set up the paper and the lights. You can use a tri-pod or buy some cheap lightstands or even fashion your own somehow and then you need a way to drape the paper. A large plastic storage bin turned on end on a table so that it is tall enough works pretty well to drape the paper over and then you also have a place to store the stuff when you are done.
You should try it. I used "garage" lights for this portrait.

I like not just the combination of textures, as everyone has noted, but of colors as well. Very sharp and effective still-life.
28 Mar 2008 3:23am
....so naturally you made an awesome image!
28 Mar 2008 6:33am
And an awesome image it is! Dy'know I've seen some pottery ornaments that look a lot like this and they are quite expensive. Your artistic talent should lead you to do some tulip sculptures as well! You might make some money that way too! (Maybe just wax them or something and stick 'em on top) Wonderful lighting and shadow arrangement :-)

Looks like a great piece of art.... We never ask why we just do when it comes to our imaginations and what we see as a shot that is our creativity...Great shot
28 Mar 2008 12:23pm
Great job on the photo...excellent!.
28 Mar 2008 8:22pm
wow! very well my friend :) I like this image
29 Mar 2008 7:14am
Interesting composition, the flower looks slightly dangerous... alive.
29 Mar 2008 10:02pm
I won't ask a thing, just tell you how wonderful and creative this shot is!
29 Mar 2008 10:10pm
Wow!!! 5 star image here Laurie, so crisp and clean and ... well... awesome! =D)
30 Mar 2008 4:51am
Very Nice shot :)
30 Mar 2008 12:24pm
Nice contrast of flower and stone, soft and hard.
30 Mar 2008 5:35pm
The combination works for my eyes. I guess there's no need for thinking about a shot. I love insticts better.
30 Mar 2008 7:19pm
those new lights are bringing out some excellent tones...
30 Mar 2008 8:33pm
Nice contrast indeed! As said before...
31 Mar 2008 6:49pm
