I think you have captured this vibrant orange lily beautifully, Alec: the detail is excellent, it is well lit and with the black b/g which I too favour for single flow blooms the subject stands out so well, almost in 3D. Even as a thumbnail, it is quite impressive and cries out for a larger viewing.
(PS. The only other thing I might add is that it might be worth considering for such a shot using the ePHOTOzine black background rather than the white......that can really make an even more dramatic statement........R)

This is very impresive, the black bg shows the lily to full advantage. Lovely colour.
