Flowers in the Sansevieria
« on: April 11, 2023, 20:59:43 »
It does not happen a lot to Sansevieria (devil's tongue) while imprisoned on the windowsill.  Flowering.  Especially in the dark. During the day, the flowers will close.

Really interesting John.
Did you use stacking on any? There's a lovely natural clarity about the results

Thanks Colin,

No stacking.  Just used the natural light, while it was dark.  Had to correct the White Balance though. F/11 and ISO at base value of 200 with the D3S.
