Project365 221: Looking at the Cosmos - Two Variations

This week's theme is 'Blossoms'; it carries on nicely from yesterday's bridal bouquet. This is a Cosmos. They are a really easy target and perhaps a little too cliche?


Looking at the Cosmos - Plate I
1/4000 f/4 ISO 400 EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM @ 105 mm Canon EOS 40D
Richmond Hill,Ontario
Canon 500D Macro Filter

To break out of the standard Cosmos image, I tried this variation which is strongly backlit. Focusing was a little challenging as I wanted my retinas left in tact when done. Rather than using the viewfinder, I used live view, but it was still a challenge to see.
