This flower was in a pot on my back porch. I love Gerbera daisies and I had so much fun shooting this lovely flower from all angles. This angle was my favorite.

    I really like the subtle edge coloring that you picked up, as the touch of yellow really makes the red-orange petals jump out of the screen!

  • Thank you so much, Celeste. I really appreciate the way you notice that kind of detail!
