A flash photo taken yesterday mid evening on the forest floor as the light was fading: other than cropping to square format, applying a delicate vignette and adding a border, the image is straight from camera.
I am not sure of I have identified this wild flower correctly as Campion.

My thanks for the comments on Last Light......your time and attention is much appreciated.

Stunning detail Ronnie, the flash has worked a treat, not sure if the flower in the background is needed in the composition as it detracts from the beauty of the main flower.
