Just another Lilly

By Paul_cats
The second photo from my lilly shoot a couple of weeks ago. This time taken with a light shining up the stem and a 150Watt halogen security lamp hanging down from the ceiling over the top of the flower with no camera flash used.
Hope you like the shot and thanks for looking.
Please view large if you have time.
Comments/criticism welcome. I wont be offended. I am here to learn.

It definitely has a glow about it, as if the light is coming from the flower, not from elsewhere.

Silky Smooth Image...!

Your choice to light the stem ensures it doesn't have a beheaded look and adds to the shot.
