Behind The Lens

Location
This beautiful bloom was spotted in the botanic gardens in Singapore
Time
It was late afternoon as I was leaving the gardens
Lighting
The late afternoon lighting was ideal to contrast the bright colours of the flower against the background.
Equipment
The camera was an Olympus 4mp 'point and shoot', hand held with an inbuilt flash.
Inspiration
Amongst the lush greenery of the park the flower seemed to beckon me to come closer and take a shot.
Editing
Slight adjustments were made to the contrat to deepen the blacks of the shadows.
In my camera bag
I always travel with at least a decent quality point and click camera, though today I rarely venture out without my Sony mirrorless ILC body and an assortment of lenses. A lens cleaner is ALSO ALWAYS CLOSE AT HAND.
Feedback
Look in unlikely places for subjects that will stand out.
