The background colour does compliment the yellow rose, wonderful detailed capture.

For some reasson, this reminds me of a Victorian lady's frilly knickers - not that I would be an expert Blush
I have attempted to photograph glass & crystal in a light cube, for my firm & found that the light was stronger in some areas, resulting in blown out areas (glass is highly reflective). I can see some areas in your beautiful Rose where the saturation had degraded; a result of the lighting inside the cube. We tried to difuse the light, using pieces of net curtain - it was not entirely successful for glass, but may work for flowers?
You are right about the background, Keith. It suits this Rose and stem perfectly Smile

Thanks for your observation Simon. The RAW file has captured all the detail. In this case I was using a spedlight with no diffuser, positioned outside the cube. I was trying out my new radio trigger and had this subject to hand.
On other occasions I've used a softbox on a flash so that the light gets double diffused and that does give softer light. It's even better with two flashes for more even lighting but I do like some directionality for most subjects.
