Calla Impressions

Last week, I had the chance to meet and see some of the floral photography work of Greg Mitchell. I found his compositions clean and simple and was inspired to do some floral photography of my own. We have a very nice clump of Calla Lilies growing in the front yard and walking by it everyday, I knew that was to be my subject. I also knew I wanted something that looked ethereal. So I created the image above by shooting hand held, stopping down but then defocusing the lens a little bit. Let me know what you think, high art or does it just look clumsy?

Technical: Canon 1Ds3, 100 Macro IS, f/5.6, 1/100s, ISO 100.
