By capto
Alstroemeria, commonly called the Peruvian lily or lily of the Incas, is a South American genus of about 120 species of flowering plants.
V2 is a more close up view as some favour the close detail shot, and some prefer to see the whole thing. The lighting was from a window behind the subject and a reflector in front.

I think I prefer the cropped image today, that backlight works so well with the vibrant colours.
