I got another arrangement, which I may get a chance to post tonight.

Very welcome, You will read "rules are meant to be broken" on many pages here. (want me to give links?) After giving comments. I was staring at ur image and thought if distance will be bit more from the glass behind then it might clear the flowers more.. although I would love to use the samee as greeting card ..

When I orginally stared at it for a bit I realized that there is a bright orange extension code in the reflected mirror (as well as a home-made dimmer switch Smile.

Do you think the angle of the mirror/table looks funny? I "straighten" the image to make the left-hand mirror line straight, but because I was shooting off-center, that left the table line angled.

Maybe if I get a chance, I'll try again sometime this week.

I did the vase with the five roses with about 7 different shots, but I was really playing with the DOF and the lighting. I shot well over 120 images, but they were primarily one, two and three rose pictures without the vase (like the one I posted before this shot).

I started with the vase, but I figured that there was too much going on, so I just focused on getting close-up flower shots. Its was only afterwards that I though the vase shots might be of interest. I'm still going through that learning phase...

Hi Munir,

If you're still waiting, I just posted another of the shots, this time with three roses. I got a bit distracted there with the abstracts...
