Yes, it is! The backlighting is great but it needs more light in the foreground. A flash would ruin it but using a reflector (commercial or home-made) to reflect some light on the front of the flower would be great.

Finally some helpful comments. Ive been posting pics on another part of this site and never a constructive word. Thanks so much. A reflector rather than a flash never occurred to me.

Very nice flower, Bynx. I wouldn't have thought of a reflector either. Good point, Cal.

Very nice picture Bryx. Looking froward more of you

But reflector idea is very neat.In a such a situation I too would have been preplexed

In one hand I agree with Cal's comments and suggestion about the flashbut on the other, I like the delicate effect caused by the subtle light behind the flower and I think you still managed to capture enough detail as is. Good work.
