After all those butterflies, insects, bugs and flies I thought about posting something different. Flowers this time.

This is an amazing snake gourd flower. Tiny but very beautiful. As these tend to wither when the sun is up I had to take this shot very early in the morning. Under flash the white flower was getting over exposed so I had to take it in normal lighting and hence, I suppose, the light blue tone of the dawn is prevalent. After a lot of trials I could get this shot to any reasonable quality. This flower is not in full bloom, I will upload that tomorrow.

This was long time back when I was starting my photographic journey and was not that adept to the technicalities (not that I am any better now). But I suppose, these experiments and trails have stood good and has helped me in times to come. Still the process continues for excellence, but as they say, miles and miles to go before I go to sleep.

WOW! What an usually beautiful flower! It looks like it's a nerve cell, feeling around for a connection.
The coloring - the almost blue against the dark background - makes me think of a star. :)

Fascinating flower!

Hi Simon,
Fantastic flower, not like other flowers that I have seen before. The image is sharp and crisp clear. Looking forward the the full bloom version of this Snake Gourd Flower.
JC

That is one interesting flower. I like the off centered composition.

Hello Sumon,
This is a beautiful capture of a species of flower that is new to me. The pale blue flower and the BG contrast so well to make this a work of art!
Fine sharpness and composition contribute to make this a fine post.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hi Mana,

Not only is this an amazing flower, it is an amazing picture. It is elegant. The beautiful flower with the marvelous details and the slight touches of green against the black bg are exquisite. Beautiful framing - you did an outstanding job.

Hi Sumon,
I really like this so uncommon flower. Awesom shape and colours.
TFS, Jos M.

If you not, you should be rich in your successes as a photographer. Certainly you are rich in your experience...perhaps from another life carried forward....wonderful.

Sumon, nunca vi flor parecida aqu. Lo primero que impacta en esta foto son las formas, recordando una descarga el嶰trica ... Colores y contrastes excelentes y conjunto muy elegante. Gracias por tus comentarios. Saludos.

Bonjour Sumon,
Wow ! You made an artistic photo ! I like it a lot.
The "+++" : smart composition, lovely subject with superb shape, POV, blue colors, sharpness, DOF, contrast against the dark BG...
The "-" : nothing...
Congratulations and thanks for sharing.

Hi Sumon,
Maybe it would be the oddest flower I've seen in my life. Looks like to me neurona, a nervous system cell. Composition with dark BG and colours and soft light works perfectly. 10 points shot!

Hello Sumon!
I do not know why I overlooked this beauty picture before! Fantastic composition with great POV, contrast and DOF!
I simply like this photo a lot!
Great work my Friend!

I saw this one in your "randoms" and could not resist opening it : such a beauty ! admirable ! also for the texture of the petals and the nice framing and the dark background...
Congratulations,

Hi Sumon,
excellent shot of this wiry flower. The white features stand out exellently against the dark background.
The glow is very captivating and you off centered shot is lovely, and the flower symmetrical feature is its grand attraction.

Regards,
Foozi
