Does She Love Me?
I thought about doing this shot all day today. I even drew a little picture and planned the lens, the location, the light everything. Then I got caught in delays on the freakin stupid frickin trains and almost missed the sunset light! So I rushed with my mum, who complained profusely, to pull apart loads of daisies for this. I really wanted to capture the petal falling to show that it is a classic, lovestuck fool doing 'she loves me, she loves me not', he has been doing it a long time, because it is evening and look at all those petals! :) There is no deep meaning to this, I am not pondering my crushes. I have an amazing girl, who I love very much, and I'm pretty sure she feels the same. Hence, the faceless, nameless subject :)
I couldn't decide on the colour treatment on this one or whether to post the B&W, so the colour versions are in the comments and follow the link if you would like to see it monochrome :D
According to shutterbug group rules, the setting used were as follows:
