Weekly Photo Challenge: Curves


I was thinking about a photo for the photo challenge this week, and to be honest there are loads that would fit – there’s so much in nature which is curved! I spent a while thinking which photo to choose and decided to go for this close up of droplets on a yellow poppy. I love the curve of the largest droplet especially and the whole flower is of course curved. We were experimenting today with using the flash to get shots which otherwise wouldn’t be possible in the available light without upping the ISO and bringing in a lot of noise. It really brings out the shine in the poppy’s petals. Thanks to my lovely Bruce for showing me how to get the right settings for the flash 🙂

I’ll also add another photo of the same poppy so you can see more of its lovely curves:
