Sorry this is a really boring flower shot. I was hoping to do something more exciting after not uploading for just over two months!

1/2000 sec
F/8
ISO 50

Lighting was just a small slave flash fired behind sheet of white Perspex.

The flower is a Chrysanthemum stood in a crystal vinegar bottle thingy and some green food colouring in the water to add some colour to what would otherwise have been a totally colourless image.

I love the colouring, and the detail of the crystal. I think the deatil is lost in the flower. But your eyes are just drawn straight to that lovely green. I think it would of made a good shot whitout the flower. Denise x

Boring? This? Get away, Rob - there ain't nothing boring about this. The work you've applied to it in terms of lighting and colouring is absolutely superb. An inspired and beautifully executed image.

Thankyou all very much for the welcome back :o) I will try and keep up with it in future.

MattieW the lighting was a very small (PORTAFLASH AC STUDIO SLAVE FLASH 208W) triggered by a nearby softbox.

Thanks Jane and Chris! I'm very lucky to have my image on the cover of FPME I think. They've printed the wrong shooting info in the mag, but i'm not going to worry about that too much. Can't complain! :o)
