Taken in my back garden just after sunset. It was quite windy so it took many attempts to get the look I wanted, but got there in the end! Off camera flash used to capture the main image (2nd curtain sync). The blue 'ghost' image was what the ambient light captured.

I've boosted the contrast and saturation a bit during raw conversion but otherwise as shot.

[100mm, f/2.8, 3.2s, ISO200, Flash (FEC -1, off camera)]

Thanks for the comments for far... anyone know what the flower is called? It's lost its tag and I can't remember what it is!

This is an incredible image, the colours are so vibrant and the "shadow" in blue enhances the shot. Wow!
Was prompted to view your pf and enjoyed what I have seen so far.
