The same Aquilegia as yesterday's offering.

Lit using just one lightbox...actually it's an old x-ray viewing box that comes in very handy for the smaller stuff....and a drop more light on the bg.This enables me to use lighter textures for a much 'softer' feel this time.
I used a much shallower dof than my normal F22....I got brave Wink
There is no stem visible on this one,I just wanted it to float into the textures.

Thankyou for dropping by/taking the time to comment.

I liked yesterday's upload but the way you've taken and processed this one is as you say 'softer' and as such is quite beautiful.
