Annie said...

Moi, I think congratulations are in order. Are you still celebrating the successful completion of your thesis?

Let me give you a bouquet of cyberflowers today!

Mike said...

That's a flower I think?. Very interesting shot.

n said...

Cool shot. Great DOF but the focus is not absolutely spot on.

Kerri said...

This shot has such a wonderful mood to it!! (if that is the right word??) Everything is so complementary... the texture of the carpet, the smoothness of the Lily, the angle of the shot -- even the blinds in the background add to it.
I love it!!!

Moi said...

A-x: yes, this is one of the very few "staged" shots you'll find on this space :)

Annie: I was busy making changes that my committee members wanted me to in my thesis and now I am FREE :)

Mike : it is ...:)

N: you are right....could it be because this has been shot in natural light or because of my hands not being stable??

Thank u all :)

Jen said...

Still looks good even though it's plastic!

How are the changes coming along and what is your thesis on?

Nikon said...

Beautiful composition, Moi, and the dark red really makes the flower stand out.
Very interesting angle that you chose (and had the imagination to "see' it).

How interesting - you bring out the beauty in the plastic :)

And blogging may be slightly better than sliced bread. I'm really getting addicted to it!

Lori said...

Calla lilies do have such a beautiful shape to them. I hope you enjoy your weekend. You deserve to have a restful one!

RUTH said...

I have a few plastic plants too....they never need watering or feeding :o) Hope you get a chance to relax after all the hard work

I like the idea of a still life. Or, should I say, a still plastic.

It almost looks porcelain rather than plastic. The angle is interesting as well. I like it.

GMG said...

Sorry to be a bit absent lately, but this week was a working hell... Maybe nothing compared to your thesis anyhow! Congratulations!
Great pictures here: loved the Blues (of course) and the Benchmark in particular.
Have a great weekend!

Hi Moi,
Looks like the baseball bat did the trick....
Well done on having it accepted, most definately feet up time.

Cheers Mark

this unusuel framing works well in this image.

Hi Moi, thanks for the comment on my p-blog. You have some great pics here that I've missed for a while. Sorry for the continued haphazard revisit to your p-blogs. Cheers...{H} B-)

JAM said...

I love the look of the photo, it makes me stare and wonder at first just what it is.

Congrats on finishing the thesis. I'm sure that's chore you're glad to be finished with!

What was the thesis on?

laurel said...

Great curves in the flower!
