Was hoping to get out at the weekend for the snowdrop season but it rained all day, this one's from my garden. I wanted to try and capture as much as the sheen on the petals as I could.
Oh and I will be doing more smoke because I like doing it, got some huge cones I want to try.

Hey K, how do you get the black bg?

Do you:

a) pluck the poor thing from its stem and take to the studio
b) stick a black bg behind it in the garden...
c) PS it to pieces?

Just curious Wink Great shot Smile

Ewan

Thanks very much everyone for all your comments and to Pete for the HC.

Ewan I'm afraid I murdered it and took it into the studio, the background would otherwise be a driveway, blame the rain at the weekend I was planning to take some au natural, mind you I have got one with a black background that I took under a tree, no manipulation, way back in my portfolio. K.

Whatever happened to "No flowers were harmed in the making of this picture"...? ;-(

Never mind, not only photographers must suffer for a good shot, and this is indeed a good one. Elegant flower and subtle lighting, good composition - I wouldn't have expected it any other way from you, of course. Good job!
