A budding photographer's daily journey. Trying to find interesting subjects to test my skills in the art every day. Note that the pictures are full size and therefore will take a little while to load on slower connections if you click to "biggie" size them.

Day 163 – Shining Through

I spent some time trying to get just the right shot with the sun at the right height, backlighting on of these large Calidora Elephant’s Ears, shining through a hole or tear and showing all the veins. This one was the best, though I am not happy with the lens flare, which I could not seem to to find a way to avoid, and still get the effect I wanted with the rest. Happy to have someone suggest a way I could have done it.

    • Thanks, but I was really disappointed in my inability to get one without the flare

        Flare adds character to the photo. 🙂
