A Little Off the Top

I have been struck by how many photographs I see of flowers like this, past their prime. They certainly make for great photographs, but sometimes it is not easy to get the detail you would like.
Flowers in this state are all about the detail, either you want it or you don’t. In the first case you get a stark view of the flower past its prime, and in the later an ethereal edge to the finality of it.
When I came across this specimen, I knew I had an odd and unusual perspective on the subject.
I find that photography is as much about the art as it is about learning new techniques and bringing your own style and ideas to bear on your work. As they say if you don’t try you can’t succeed.
