I set this up in my studio as a still life fowler, the flower looks just perfect sitting there. I managed to bring out all the detail out in the flower it's self. People say that you should take the flowers in their own environment but for me this one works.

I always tried to take images of flowers in the garden but I have more or less given up. I now pick a blossom that takes my fancy and bring it inside where it can sit still Wink and have its portrait taken.
You have managed very sharp detail and this is beautiful

You can shoot flower in whatever environment you like. Ive not heard of the requirement to use the natural environment, - I image finding a natural environment for an Orchid would be quite a challenge! And a vase is not a natural environment for any flower!


Its very well exposed, and detailed. I would suggest you clean up the spots on the black surface to make it even better.

A truly fine rendition of a Lilly. I have no problem with your approach at all. If anyone wanted to see all the detail of a Lilly bloom, here it is.
