    I was at my friends apartment walking her dog for her and I snapped these twi pics. I dont have an awesome camera or great photography skills, but these two pics just came out cool to me.

    I called them "Dare to be different"

    The funny thing is the purple flower in the first one is the same as the purple flower in the second one, I dont know why the other flowers look yellow in one and orange in another, lol

    I love the title.

    I'm willing to bet the reason for the difference in colour of the orange flowers is due to a change in your exposure. The top photo is brighter overall so the colour in the orange flowers washed out a bit. The bottom one, being darker, maintains the saturation.

    The reason for the difference in exposure is because the purple flower is the lightest one there. Because it takes up so much more room in the second shot, your metering value probably changed to darken it a bit.

    Very nicely done! :)

    Ohhhh that makes sense. My camera is pretty decent I believe (Canon powershot(?) SD750) but I dont know how to work the manual settings yet! I need to read that manual!
