Cheers, Mike

I'm not good enough at Post Processing to do this. A bit of contrast enhancement and USM is about it...

I'm going to dare to be different ... I like the second best ... the first is very relaxing (coming from being raised on a farm) but I really like the defining lines that the light brings to the flower.

Very nice!!!

I like them both, they are very different from each other. Keep playing with this - it can be SO effective when done right.

I like both. I prefer to use back lighting especially when capturing portraits. I typically over expose by about a half f stop which produces a shinny effect on the hair and use a fill in flash to illuminate the face. I don't have any digital images to post but have had a lot of success during my film days. Jay

I too like both these shots, backlighting is great sometimes and you've captured it well with both of these.
