The sun was streaming in the window (honest) on a floral bouquet..........trying to concentrate on one lily as the main subject, I have tinkered a bit with the original in Photoshop.

Many thanks for the comments on Bungle and special thanks to Leon {Tibetan} and Trev {TrevBat WCC} for their User Awards which are much appreciated.

Another awesome flower capture Ronnie, the dark vignette works very well to isolate the main flower, excellent photography again my friend.
