Amazing light. Amazing capture. I second asking for details. I think maybe it could use a little more room around the flower. Even if it is all black, it might be interesting to work with the negative space a bit more.

Take care, Glen

Wow. Colors are fabulous and complimented by both the composition and focus. The arc of greenish-yellow between the core of the flower and it's outer petals takes the image to the next level of quality.

Thank you very much for the kind words!

I have found that a single light source works best on flowers, it allows more of the texture to be captured. I then use mirrors to reflect, or bounce that source into areas of the flower I wish to illuminate. I believe it allows the main source to dominate, but still retain subtle textures in the flower itself. Hoped that helped
