It’s All About Light

Flowers in light

This was taken in the hotel lobby in Dallas. The back of the lobby is a wide open room with a wonderful sky light in the center. As I walked by I noticed the light shinning on these flowers sitting in the center of the room. It’s all about the light!

  1. I love not just the light in this photograph, but also the way the flower flows across the entire photo. Earl is right, you do magic with ordinary items. Very nice.

  2. You are right, the light makes the image. I really like how the pedals radiate the light.

  3. A very gentle image in what isn’t considered a gentle place. Well done Monte.

  4. @Mary Ann: Not sure about the magic but there does come a time when photographers really do look for the light then work it from there. We all do it!

    @Steve: Not sure I have what I really saw but it is pretty close.

    @Ray: Yes, I think so. I would like to have met the person who placed them in that light. They saw it first.
