Really have to work hard on flower shots to make sure they don't get boring. Strangely enough, I have no recollection of having actually taken this shot.

Very dark and romantic.
Samarth: thanks a lot...
a dark luminosity fitting well to this flower giving a soft look of it
Samarth: thanks...
Beautifully composed picture. Like the contrast of the white flower and background. Especially like the soft lighted background flowers, they are fabulous. Great work on this image.
Samarth: thanks john!

Very interesting. A little too much darkening though, if the omni post was brighter would make for a better contrast.

Well framed, creative, but its the processing again that was at fault.
Samarth: i think i agree with you on the too much darkening thing, trying out new action...
