Great shot Gary, I much prefer this to your previous one as this seems to 'leap-off' the screen more - much brighter.

I think that this one is good however against a darker background perhaps the flower would stand out further.

I really like the bright background and overall lightness - suits the subtle colours of the subject. Lovely pictorial image. Bruce.

Very dramatic and the colourful bits are not overexposed, so it looks good.
