Yup .. lovely picture and I echo the concern about staining ... lilies doing the stamen-stain trick have been thr ruination of on eof my table cloths!

Please tell me a bit more about the making of the pic .... especially that glowing background.

Thanks for sharing this.

Well, its straight off the camera at an f3.2 and a focal length of around 28mm iso 200.I used a Florecent light setting that kind of chromotises the look of the image slightly.And was using my Wide angle attachment.The orange glow is off the Lava lamp my mum has reflecting on the yellow wall in our living roomI was quite pleased with the outcome of the overall image

As for the staining " I DIDN'T DO IT" :lol:
