Photographer's Note

On my honeymoon in Tahiti I shot this Torch Ginger while visiting the Paul Gaugan muesuem.

I tried to line it up to get lighting from above and slightly behind to get maximum detail on as much of the flower as possible.

This was shot using a Nikon F, 35mm lens, Kodachrome 25 film.

Scanned using a Nikon Super Coolscan 8000 at 4,000 dpi.

Edited in Photoshop CS to sharpen a little and increase saturation.

For reference: Tahiti is a seperate country, although it is a French protectorate... Tahiti should be included as a country in the drop-down list of countries for uploading. Also, Tahiti is listed in the City drop down list under France.
