@omid: Thank you, Omid. I'm glad you like the work I did.
now that I´ve took a look into google, I´m rather sure it is a pineapple plant, flowering. there are a lot of varieties, whatever, your image can´t get better with that information :) have a beautiful day.

@daniela scharnowski: Thanks. I looked up pineapple plant flower, and it does look very similar.
Lovely close up - the textures and shapes are beautiful

@Ruthiebear: Thanks! It was fun to work with.
I love your point-of-view. I feel as if I am part of the plant, nestling right next to that amazing orange bloom. As always, lovely texture work.

Very skilful use of ambient backlight, Anita. Love how the blossom has gained center stage in your composition.

it looks like a dragonfruit.. but whatever it is, i like the 'fieriness' of it all.. :) nice work!
24 Jan 2013 10:23pm
@rian: Thanks. I'll have to find out the actual name. I like the term "fieriness."
