Excellent use of back lighting and selective focus together, producing a marvellous macro shot of the stamens of this bloom.

More dark and sombre than your usual, Barry, but just as beautiful. The lighting is excellent and the composition so balanced. Top work again.

I thought the hollyhock image was good but this is an absolute belter. Pin-sharp and the composition is spot on and the lighting....well, just perfect.
