Sun-Touched Highlight & Shadow Hibiscus Pair

The sun reached this pair and touched them just before I was ready.
But I still liked their image.
So, here it is; enjoy!

Thanks to you folks who frequently offer helpful comments for improvement!

An appealing image, angkymac. There is a lot of enticing detail at the lower end of the stamens that may have benefited from allowing the sunlight to progress a little further into the top flower? Or maybe this image provides that when shown full-screen size?

I like that light coming in.

The backlighting really helps this image.

Lighting is tricky at times but when doubt make it count . Nice images like this are rewarding .

This is very nice with nice, subtle sunlight accenting certain parts of the flowers. It would have been nice to get some sunlight onto the stamens, but if you are like me, I have not yet figured out how to command the sun to do what I want.

Two of a kind always beats one. The detail and texture of the flowers is great. Good composition and colors. I think the sun was your ally In the photo

I'm glad you brought up that point to consider. I was so busy grabbing the shot that I didn't think about waiting for a few more minutes to see what happened as the sun moved!
Thanks.

Now THAT is something I hadn't thought of doing!
"Hey! Mr. Sun! I want..."
Thanks for the suggestion -- "Thinkin' outa tha box!"
Actually, I liked the sunlight, as you said, but wished I had gotten to it a few minutes earlier. I should also have waited after this batch of shots to see where the light progressed.
Thanks for your input!
Angky.

Several of you have said similarly, that the sun helped!
Thanks for finishing it out.

To each of you, "Thanks!"
My wish was / is that I could have controlled the lighting a bit more in order to bring up the luminance of the lower flower. But from what I'm getting from you folks, it has its strong points as is.
Your inputs, each of you, is appreciated.
Angky.
