What are your thoughts about this? I so far have hesitated to post any when I used flash, not sure if it is really giving it a natural look.
Yesterday, I found the first bud on one of my native Clematis. I was pretty excited since I put some in the ground last fall and more this spring. Not always do the natives flower their first year.
It was raining, so I did not have enough natural lighting and I wanted the photo at this time. I am sure there will be more buds later, but this is like a brand new baby to me.
There are a few photos in the database that include buds, but not by themselves, so I am thinking of adding this to the collection. The leaves reflect a little from the rain, but I do not think it changed the coloring.
I have heard strong opinions for and against flash photography, so I thought I would ask before I bother editing the photo for web use.
