Study In Curves - Part 2
This lily was outrageously, sinfully curvy. I've always thought of lilies as graceful and elegant. I think someone forgot to tell this flower. It looks more like a hothouse flower doing a salsa. Can't you just see it's skirt swirling to the music? Can you tell I'm watching Dancing with the Stars as I write this? :)
With these flowers, I'm really trying to highlight their shape and their flourish. More so than the color or the fact that it's a flower. I found that ruffle so intriguing. I tried them in b&w so that the color wouldn't be a distraction, but I thought it lost some of it's exoticness without the color.
All of these were taken w/ my D200, w/ the 70-180 macro, and my tripod @ ISO 100.
