This is lovely! There is so much movement to this flower, like layers of tulle and ribbon!

Very beautiful and colorful, Anta. I'd like to see this on a dark background. I think it would really make it pop.

I love the little leaf in the lower left hand corner. While I'm right there with you on experimenting and trying new approaches, I think I would prefer a black background for this particular flower.

Beautiful image....beautifully composed..... but again, my preference is a darker background..... but i guess that's why baskin robbins has so many flavors?? :)

@Susan: Thanks! I intend to try it with darker BGs. I always appreciate your input.

Love the exquistite color and detail. The white background makes it look like a 'studio shot'. Is it?!?!?
