All of these images are straight out of the camera - no retouching or manipulation of any kind.
I'll let you pick which images you like the best and I am just going to put the time. Will you tell me which photos you like best - and why?
#1 - 7:02 p.m.
#2 - 7:10 p.m. (yes, these are the same purple flowers)
#3 - 7:03 p.m.
#4 - 7:10 p.m.
As you can see on this last photo I added an element in the foreground. Although it's out of focus having it there and something for the flowers to rest on gives the photo more dimension. Oh and this is all carpet phlox. It blooms only in the spring here.
