Today I took some time fulfilling the daily requirement for the 50mm challenge. I was downtown during lunch, and made my way to the Telus building where they have potted flowers along the +15 walkway. I found this guy at about the half way point of the walkway, and found the backlighting caught my attention. After a while on my knees I produces a pile of out-takes and a couple nice shots. This one I like because the backlight focuses attention around the flower. Not that it needs it, being of the hit me red variety. A lot of the lines draw you into the base of the flower, which exhibits a nice soft focus. I then find my attention drawn back up the stem towards the odd red flower. The leaf jutting towards the viewer in the bottom left shows off the depth of field. If you can't see it, make sure to check out the full sized version.
