Pink Kunzea by MayEbony Pink Kunzea by MayEbony
A gorgeous little pink Kunzea - I haven't been able to find out the sub species name yet.

Found this on 'section 2' of the Yaberoo Budjara Heritage Trail today [link]
Oh wow - I won 3rd Prize, Novice with this at my camera club September '12 :faint:

The colour contrast in this, and the simple diagonal composition, are very nice. As is the bokeh. I also appreciate the way your watermark doesn't damage the image. There are two minor niggles for me in this shot though. The first is that I would like to see some detail in the anthers, but they aren't very sharp, maybe due to wind or to camera movement. Maybe a faster shutter speed would help this? The other niggle is that there is an anther down near the inner border on the bottom edge. My eye follows the diagonal of the branch down to the left, but is then drawn to the juxtaposition of that anther and the white border, and consequently straight out of the shot. I'm being a little picky here, but I think the shot would have been stronger if there was a little more space between the bottom of the bloom and that border.

Hope this helps.:)

Thank you so very much for your critique, I appreciate it so much! And yes, I can see exactly what you mean with the points you have raised. I have been tending away from frames recently - or more usually a 3pt black frame and nothing fancy. But I can see what you mean with the lower anthers leading out of the picture.
And yes, it was quite a windy day and I still didn't know enough about my camera to decrease the shutter speed at that time. I was just venturing into Manual mode. I'll have to put a note in my diary for this August to go there again and see if I can improve my shot I think.
Very many thanks again. Critique with helpful advice is rare and I'm very grateful for your time and kindness :iconkimberely:

How lovely, and what a sweet little plant! The soft lilac you've used in the border really enhances it further; a beautiful contrast against the green background.

I would love one of these for my garden! They're so soft and gentle looking. :D

Thank you so much for your very kind words Cassandra - I'm so happy that you liked my photo and enjoy this beautiful flower. It would certainly make a lovely garden flower but I doubt it would like the UK climate :( I'm from the UK myself originally and I didn't like the climate all that much either LOL

I've opened up your gallery to have a look later.
