Just a quickie while I decide on what to do next.
Please look at the L A R G E version Smile

1/2000
F/6.7
ISO/50

The back lighting is a very similar set up to my last shot but used a studio flash with snoot on the Chrysanthemum flower head.

Thanks for looking Smile

I love the lighting on this, Rob. It's so simple and accentuates the simplicity of the over all subject.

Definitely check out the big version. You have the lighting and setup technique down to a fine art, so you can think more about what you want to accomplish rather than the details of how to do it.

Hi Rob

OK this is what I think Smile- (fine shot tho it is)

The Bg light is a little to intrusive ??

It could gain I think from being more landscape with a bigger space to the right implying the plant is yearning for the light !!!! ???? Smile Smile

Not your shot I understand - but there ya go Smile

I like this one to, it has a different look I dont feel it needs more space, I do agree about a different colour flower as this pink absorbs the blue, but maybe thats what you wanted not sure, anyway, you always capture the beauty ... you must have a good collection of glassware do you collect them just for photographing?
