A Different POV

Looking for something a little different while at Longwood Gardens so I composed this image from the backside of the flower; forgot to take note of ID if anyone knows; to catch the nice lighting. It slipped my mind to change the ISO and f stop hence the 8 second exposure. Fortunately it was very calm.

Very cool!! I might dodge the dark area at the bottom (or clone) but not a real biggie.

Ed: Well seen and superbly composed and captured. Not much help on the ID from this view but still a lovely image. >=))>

Great shot, Ed. Thinking outside the box. I would also dodge or clone out the dark section.

Love the unusual perspective and your processing. The softness works here. No nits from me.

Always great to see the world in unexpected ways. It’s not easy to compose these types of shots when you have a beautiful flower staring at you.
