More..... or Less?


f/ 1.4


f/ 2.8


f/ 7.1



A white camellia from our garden, picked and brought inside to photograph and enjoy.


Sometimes I can't decide which image I like best. Which do you prefer?

I love all three!
There is a wonderful continuity and integral images in my opinion.
I imagine your perfect large format images in my home, juxtaposed...
Wonderful work ... Thank you.

My camellia has not stood in my garden ... :-(
I will try again...

Thank you for technical informations (f/...).

Sweet weekend!

I like the first one because it made me come and have a look at it. I saw it in my sidebar and thought 'what is that'. In my sidebar it looked like a cloud, and then I thought may be water, but no it was a beautiful white camellia.

They are all gorgeous but the last one is my favorite. Lovely images!

I just went to have a look in your sidebar Rosemary, I can see what you mean. I love that "less" lets us use our imaginations more!

Einee fantastische, kleine Bildgeschichte, die mit einem Traum beginnt und in einer wunderbaren Blüte endet...

That first one is pretty interesting. At first I wasn't sure what it was - thought maybe clouds, but knew that wasn't right.

'Tsuki said...

That's fabulous !

The first pic, I thought it was some weird clouds in a stormy sky...

Nice work indeed !

(I have no favorite on those ones : all of them are important to understant the global picture)

Sharon M said...

Tough choice. They're all so good. I think I like the last one the best, but really, I could go with any of them.

Catherine said...

They're all beautiful but if I had to choose I think I like the middle one.

hello gorgeous said...

for me it would have to be the third image...

hugs

hello gorgeous xxx

Birgitt said...

I like the third ... The best picture because the flower is easy to see and still looks enchanted ...

greetings of Birgitt

Rena said...

I like the last one the best although they're certainly all lovely! It might depend on what I'm wanting to use the photo for.

Cinzia said...

I like very much number 3!!!
But all photos are beautiful...

gourgeous!! :)

It's hard to pick from this lovely series, but I'd say the last one. Love the progression from slightly out of focus graduating to more in focus. What a difference the f-stops make! Thanks for sharing that.

LisaS said...

Oh I like the first one best. It sort of reminds me of a cloud ;)

MaryL said...

Artistically, I like all three... the first one looks like clouds! :)

TheChieftess said...

The top and the bottom!!! Wonderful shots...very ethereal...

DeVona said...

I enjoy looking at the bottom one most! Do they have fragrance as well?

Karin M. said...

Wow, great photo, art ... so classy ...
Best regards, Karin

akwamaryna said...

Beautiful, mysterious images.
The first picture is the most magical.
Hugs

Pieces of Sunshine said...

DeVona, they don't appear to have fragrance at all. The petals are rather delicate and bruise easily.

Seeing Each Day said...

I'm only answering this question on the understanding that this equates to being asked to choose between chocolates. I'm going to go the last one - I like that the detail at the front to balance out the beautiful soft dreaminess at the back.

Juliana said...

wohooow! well done!)))
Love this close-ups!
something magical...

xoxo, Juliana

Laura Delegal - Leroy Photography said...

The first!

Deanna said...

All three or quite lovely, but if choosing, I choose #3.

Lisa said...

I love that last one! Simply beautiful!

Terri Buster said...

All are nice, but that last one is gorgeous!

Rosemary said...

I can see why it was hard for you to decide. Each photo makes me feel something different. I'd go for the first shot, dreamy, soft, the blur around the edges is beautiful :)

Linda R said...

I can't even pick.. They are all amazing... Hope you are enjoying your weekend my friend.

Hugs~

Rosanna Maisch said...

Oh, das ist wunderschön, feine Foto-Poesie!

Herzlichst Rosanna

Rosemary Aubut said...

I truly love them all but I love the abstract quality of the second one, just a hint of what is yet to come Great work!

Doug Hickok said...

Delightful experiment... I like them all, but perhaps the first for its mysterious dreamy look.

marijke said...

I don't want to choose. Every single photo has it's special beauty. Great photography Karen.
Have a wonderful day.

Jennifer {Studio JRU} said...

I expected to come and see a post with sky and cloud photos! From the little thumbnail image, it thought it was clouds. What a happy surprise to come and see a gorgeous flower. I do like all the images for different reasons. I think my favorite is right in the middle a bit clear and a bit unclear. :)

Marie said...

I think that first shot is my favorite....it's dreamy, and you aren't sure what that pure white billow is! Lovely! Oh, and that blue-tongued lizard was really neat in the next set of photos too. Can you tell--I always have trouble figure out what I like best about your photography! :-)

Cheryl said...

Partial to ethereal quality of the first one. Less is more in this case.

Madge Bloom said...

Soft, pristine and simply beautiful!

Ocean Soul Karen said...

I love the first one...at first I thought it was some wild cloud formations in the sky! It's an imagination sparker!

Thea said...

They're all beautiful.
My favourite is the 3rd. :)

Fernando Santos (Chana) said...

Excelentes fotografias...
Cumpeimentos

黄清华 Wong Ching Wah said...

Nice abstract pov !

thefisherlady said...

the first one is heavenly and undecipherable to me(my absolute favourite)... could be clouds or waves or heaven wings... or a white camellia! All three are stunning!

Gunilla Bäck said...

Gorgeous! I like them all!

Anna said...

This is so awesome, I like them all, Sunshine!
Greetings Anna :))

Ruth said...

Both are beautiful, but it's the second one for me, I love that crisp edge in macro petal shots, it's stunning :)

LeAnne said...

Lovely work on all. I found the first one really striking. Thanks for sharing with Flower Art Friday!

Lisa said...

Sooooo lovely!!! I adore the color.

Liz said...

Simply beautiful!

Sara Chapman in Seattle USA said...

I like the third one best, but any would be lovely on a wall, framed. Thanks for a lovely post.
