Thanks Mandy, Barbara and Sylvia. This was a composite image. I took the flowers, extracted them from a very fussy background, placed them on a white background in PS and using Gaussian blur made the background you see in the picture. Then pasted the flowers over the background and using Shadow Lab in Eyecandy 4000 plug-in, made the shadows...great fun, if a little time consuming , perhaps 30 mins in all.
That method gives you a very complimentary background to any flower.
Cheers...Leo
