Translucence

Translucence.

One thing about morning glories that is so cool but hard to photograph is when backlighting is illuminating the flower. I wanted to find one flower that was lit with the background being dark. It is like a lantern lighting up in the dark. Now that being said, it is tough to capture that feeling on digital film. I had to set the meter to really underexpose the background to try and capture the feeling of the flower lighting up. I hope this worked but you let me know what you think.
