Nice idea. Great angle and I like the way the stem almost disappears into the darkeness.

I like the composition and simple set up for this one, K. The glow effect is certainly interesting but sits oddly with me, I can't quite put my finger on it. The green of the stem is rather dark, which is fine as it's not the most interesting part of the plant, but the brightness/intensity in the middle of the flower makes me think it's hiding some interesting texture there. The pink parts look great, just my "mind's eye" keeps wondering what's hidden under the yellow. I don't know - that's just the feeling I get when I look at it.

Hardly critique...this is waffle! LMAO!

Thank you both, Lauren I can assure you were was no texture to hide, if there was I was going to use it and go all contrasty Wink The glow was actually a light I'd placed to try and lift the centre of the flower, really disappointed with these flowers, and the gradient has increased the intensity for some reason. Thank you for your honest feedback it is very much appreciated. K.
