This Begonia grows in my back yard. They are such weird-looking flowers. At least the color version doesn't look like some sort of peculiar insect. I hope you like it.

Here is the B & W version: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1277037

You do these shots extremely well Endre. I can't decide between the two versions this time, but I wish there was a little more room on the right ~ Ron

This is the best shot I've seen of a begonia. You sure brought out all the detail. Still not attractive though.

Thanks, Ron! I'm glad you like it.

I constrain myself to a standard cropping format since I do sell these and an exotic cropping makes it harder for people to frame them. Were I to give it more room on the right, that would necessitate moving the entire flower so as to appear farther away and then there would be more white on the other side, as well. I don't like centering subjects if I can help it or unless it absolutely demands a centered look - as I did with those three orchids.

All best wishes,

Endre

Thanks so much! I try to get the best out of every flower even if they are bizarre looking. I'm glad you think I succeeded in some way.

All the best,

Endre

Thanks so much, Roberta! With a strange flower like this the details are crucial or it would just look like mush.

So glad you like it.

All the best,

Endre

Lovely, my most favorite of all is begonias, not only unusual flowers but the foliage is stunning as well. You have done justice to this little gem.

Thank you, Patsy, my friend! It is a difficult flower to photograph. I had a number of shots with the neat leaves, as well, but this is the only one I could make work from a compositional standpoint. I'm glad you like it.

Warm regards,

Endre

A lovely interpretation of a... begonia.
Endre, I just had a minor epiphany- or perhaps it was that burrito I ate for lunch.
What if:
Color images of flowers cause people to appreciate the flowers.
B&W images of flowers cause people to appreciate the photographer.
There might be some truth to that.
I'll have a burrito for lunch tomorrow and address that thought .

Thank you, Charlie, my friend! I'm glad you like it!

I think you should keep eating burritos. They seem to cause wise insights. Would that those in political power would eat more burritos. I think you may be right about the color vs the b & w. Of course, I enjoy having my photography appreciated but I also feel a responsibility to represent the flower in the best way. Anyway, please keep up the burrito eating.

All best wishes,

Endre
