I’m learning how to take macro flower photography and what it is that makes it a good photo. This image turned out well because of the focus and clarity in the petal details and their crisp outline. I’m using my old beginner Nikon D40 but with my 55-200 lens I can get a pretty good shot. The shutter speed is 1/500, ISO 200 with an F stop of 9. It was a pretty sunny day in my garden where this was taken.
Even though it is the end of this flower’s life I think it is beautiful, hence the quote.
