To make flowers into art requires that you be clear about what you felt when you saw the flower and how you describe it to convey that feeling to the person seeing the picture. The flowers in these works are not about how beautiful the flowers are, but rather aim to depict one face of some mysterious expression. These shots blur the background with the aperture open to F3.5 and focus on the center part of the flower in the bottom part of the frame. To emphasize the parts of the petals that are illuminated by the backlighting and to create a mysterious atmosphere the exposure has been compensated in the minus direction, creating a darker frame.
