Still, flowers look really good even when they're getting blown around by the wind!

Another interesting look would be to use burst mode with a fast enough shutter speed to freeze motion, and then in photoshop layer a few frames over each other with the overlay blending mode.

Try a slow shutter with day-light flash, match the flash GN to the ambient light so you don't blow out the details. I've got examples with flowers but they're buried in my archives, so I hope this will do.

Nice, looks like something from a Batman movie.

From my first roll with the FED 3 rangefinder (which appears to have a shutter problem at it's highest speed, 1/500th because it has strong vignetting on the left of some shots.) Fomapan 400 in Diafine.

That's absolutely epic...

Thank and yes, it's real - Part of my South Wales Coast images.

I have a little audio & visual slide show located here if you're interested in taking a look.

Spring is here, and it's passing me by!!! (Wish I had more time to photograph it).

My favourite light is right after a storm, usually in the afternoon, everything looks super clear, and colours are warm and radiant. April showers/May flowers, eh?
50mm @ f/2.

Thanks for the tip ronin74, I'll try it out when the wind is blowing nice and fiercely!

Me likey! The vignette is very stylish too. I feel that you may have been able to use the various lines and contrasting patterns to produce an even more dramatic visual effect! I wonder if you could go back and try some other compositions/perspectives. Just my two cents

Took this about an hour ago. Even with the polarizer filter on, the colors were so ugly and bland given the overcast sky this evening, so I did the next best thing - convert it to black and white and tweak the hell out of it.

I think you succeeded, big time
