Evening Flowers

One of the great things about using a faster shutter speed is you can get a more dramatic look, with the right combination of light and shadow. I’ve often used this with a setting sun in the background to get a fairly sharp but almost silhouette foreground. What really fascinates me is that this takes the subject in a direction beyond the experienced reality, without resorting to Photoshop. This photo was taken on an evening walk, where the sun was only a short distance from hitting the horizon. It was fairly dark on the trail but nothing like the resulting image. (Faster shutter speed means less light into the camera.)
