Strelitzia reginae... Bird of Paradise

Pinched this flower from my sister's garden.
Because of its shape,I found it quite difficult to photograph.

It is difficult to photograph but you have caught it perfectly. How did you manage the black background with still wonderful lighting?

I have so many photos of the "Bird of Paradise" but I'm never happy with them. This is awesome! :)

This really is gorgeous - your choice of a black background was perfect - it really lets a person admire the amazing detail of a bird of paradise.

You captured it well. Did you set up the back ground? It's just so perfect!

Lui said...

It is indeed striking and it comes in different varieties. I think its about time I posted mine.

You captured the details well.

Nadege, this is over-the-top gorgeous!
I love these flowers, but we rarely see them here. Certainly only in floral arrangements, and even then they are difficult to come by. Really, really beautiful image!

Thank you so much for sharing at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful evening!
