The flower on the leaf

The plants were besting each other, and macro photography was having a good day in the garden. As always, the images looked good on the LCD screen. Cynically, I was sure the effect would be different on the computer screen. In such case, the best one can do is to shoot on RAW and keep my fingers crossed. That is if you can wait to see the image later, but here I was taking images and seeing them immediately on the camera screen.

Then-even now-I was new to the field of photography, and the first experiment was with macro photography. Composition, lighting and spotting subjects were still theoretical knowledge. But when I saw a flower, hanging precariously on a leaf, I knew there was something there. I clicked about five images, from as many different angles. This was the best, to my eyes. People ask me if I had intentionally placed the flower there, a choreographed image, though not averse to experiments, it's nature's work.

It still is one of my favourites, after a year.
