A study in scarlet #1 - Begonias, back lit
DP273-2015 Posted late Wednesday, September 30
Tomorrow I'll post a front lit image of blossoms from the same begonia plant, taken at the same time as this image. Note, apart from cloning out a few distracting lighter areas in the background, I left the background much as it appeared in the raw image. The back-lighting from the sun was strong enough to create the illusion of a black backdrop when the blossoms were correctly exposed.
