Orange Drops Too

By RubberBullets
Many thanks for the C&Cs from yesterdays shot. I did like the picture but felt that it could have been better in that the colours of the background were a bit too close to those of the flower.

Today's picture uses a similar technique to yesterday, but this time I used a different white balance for the background to really improve the colour contrast. I also refined the technique for cutting out the foreground a bit to give a cleaner image.

I hope you like this one too.
