2005-04-05 - Flower of Fire

Today's photo is by request for Jason Brown - thanks for reminding me about it! I originally took it for a university assignment where we had to photograph a household object.

I don't really know what to say about this photo since it is so simple (maybe too simple?) but I like the flower-like appearance of the gas burner. I thought about cropping the reflection from the bottom but then I think it really would have been too simple for my tastes. I can't take credit for this idea - I saw it done by someone on PhotoSIG. I tried to make my attempt different with various angles but I didn't really come up with anything I was that happy with. Maybe I'll have to try it again with my D70 and some different lenses (this one was done with the Coolpix 990).
