A slightly different version of one I posted a couple of days ago. I thought there was too much background in the end on the first one.
I still like the way the light has caught the petals and made them look so soft.
Hope you like it too....:o))
It can not get better than this.

Awesome Shot! BIG Click!
Cracking shot. love the lighting on the petals and the center is so sharp.
Very well exposed central section with superb detail in the backlit petals. I like the balance too. Great shot. One change... could you make the background a smoother gradation? There are a few areas where you can almost see a line as the tone changes. Not sure if it's lighting shadows or digital processing.
Pete's up Early this morning Well done on the EC this is Excellent
Prefer this to the previous one, you have some nice shots in your portfolio. Click.
I think its the light making the petals semi transparent for me. Super close-up
Nice shot, and well done on the EC.
I love the soft light - ethereal. Click - Can you enlighten us on your lighting technique please ?
Lovely light, super detail. Prefer this to the other one. click
Good decision, great reward ! Congratulations ! Click.
Gorgeous. Perfect exposure and great comp.
Lovely image, congrats on the EC.
Lovely image! It really deserves the EC. Congratulations!
Ohhhhhh........... just got in from work to a nice supprise!!!
Thanks for the EC Pete. You are right about the background, I did try to make it smoother in Photoshop but ended up bluring the edges of the petals as well. Is doesn't look as bad in a better quality image when you print it though!!
The flower is lit from behind (left as you look at the pic) with a halogen lamp and lit from above with another halogen lamp to pick up the center of the flower. The camera was set to Tungsten to make the background look blue. Believe it or not its actually glossy photo paper!!
Thank you for all your comments...... Emma :o))
stunning flower pic. You have to offer up a bloody good shot of a flower to get any votes not to mention an EC and this is proof of that
What can I say that hasn't already been said?
Ditto to all above and a big CLICK!!
Beautiful, well done on the EC, much deserved. K.
Fantastic shot !
It's a beautiful shot! Brilliant composition and light.
Congratulations, superb shot
Love that backlighting. Well done.
Well done to keep the highlights under control. Digital is a sod for blowing highlights unless you are really careful
Fantastic image. well done.
Now that is a flower shot...excellent..
i like the way u use the light.
