Floral Photography w/ ND Filter

What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? I tried to take a photo of Iris flower in my garden by noon, but the light was so harsh. It might desaturate the color of flower. So I put a neutral density filter in front of lens. I was able to capture the clear shot which was not only overexposed but also colors are not faded away. This experimental shot was the first time use of ND filter.

  • I used 18~200mm zoom lens on Sony Nex-7 mirrorless camera. Also I used a Neutral Density filter in order to reduce the harsh light effect over the flower. I took a photo at F40 which was a lot smaller f-stop and enough to cut down the harsh light.
