This picture had enough contrast to make a potential b/w image. Removing the colour enhances the drops of water. Some of the background fits with the silhouette of the iris, too.
The back view offers a centred misty or fog-like environment similar to what you might imagine on a summer morning after an overnight rainfall. It adds some mood to the scene.
I generally avoid back-view shots of irises when the new and unopened bulb takes centre stage unless there’s something else the shot offers. At least the bulb here is clean and neat.
6:30 am. It looks like a night shot but this is how it turned out at the start of the day. I was searching for macro images with water droplets. This one had mini droplets all around the edges like beads. Simple but elegant.
