I shot this marsh plant yesterday and contrary to how it looks it was a strongly lit contra-jour shot.

Processing to get the flower detail clear resulted in the near total black background (which looks excellent printed on canvas - another print sorted for our September exhibition)

I wondered how you would think it looks here?

(It reminded me of a Japanese Ikebana setting for some reason)

A simple image, which at the same time is very beautiful.
