Pink Dahlia


Normally I don’t use my mobile for taking images… especially flowers where I just love to use my macro lens. However, the following image was photographed using my Samsung A51 5g.

Sofia in her lens-artists challenge this week, asks us to explore exposure. And I just love how the light hit the centre of this beautiful flower.

A photograph of a pink dahlia photographed at Nymans in West Sussex.

  2. Smart phones have very good cameras on board. There will always be a difference with real photography equipement, but not every one wants (or is able) to make the investment.
    You prove that smart phones produce great results too.

    1. Thank you xx… The trouble is I have it in my pocket… and forget it’s there. The times I’ve been in trouble for not taking it out with me… he used to call it the most immobile agoraphobic mobile ever.. stuck on the kitchen side πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  4. Although your control is more limited, cellphone cameras are a great option because they are nearly always with us. It would have been a shame to miss this beauty Bren!

      1. For camera look into the 13 Pro or Pro Max. The 14 may be out also. I converted to all Apple products 15+ years ago (MacBook, iPad, iPhone, iWatch) so I like the compatibility .

          1. Yes. I worked and played with Microsoft for a long time. It was a ‘transition’ and learning curve.

          2. I think when the time comes to replace, I might go for a MacBook Pro.
