A beautiful iris, Jenn, captured in the garden and presented expertly: lovely floral work.
As you know I do like the black b/g for presentation of single blooms, so this one ticks all the boxes for me.

Lighting and exposure is spot on, Jenn. It looks 3D and you can almost feel the texture.

Have to agree with Dave, he said it better than I could, superb capture.
