Those little white specs look like water droplets to me. It happens to me when I use a flash sometimes. The water reflects the light, but since the focus is on the center the water just looks like specs of light, also when I sprinkle glitter on the flowers I get the same effect. I like the softness of the petals, I have no problem with the lights, so for me, this is an exceptional photo. I especially love the detail in the center there. Well done. My Gallery
Thank you Chris for your comments, the white specs are, as Amanda says water droplets, this was taken on a bright sunny afternoon, no flash used, just pure natural sunlight. thanks for commenting......JulieTwelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop.
I wonder (for the future) if there's something that can be done to bring out the drops more in such a situation. Hold up some kind of reflective card or something when shooting the pic. Any ideas?--Chris
