25/365 Magnolia at sunset

This photo is more along the lines of what I was going for on Day 4.

It sure helps when the sun is shining! What a great demonstration of how light makes a difference in a photo. This is the exact same plant, just three weeks later. I'm still pleased with how the photo turned out on Day 4, but it's nice to see the result end up closer to the goal.

For this photo, I again sat on the ground, but put the bloom between myself and the sun. I'm determined to get a true silhouette, so I'll have to give it another go, but this is definitely closer.

Camera: Canon 40D with 60mm macro lens, 1/500s, f/4 at ISO 200 at about 8:00 p.m.
