a white balance maybe would have benefit this
but its a delicate and subtle arrangement and background
nice view to look at

FWIW, this was one of my top ten picks for the challenge (I gave it an 8). Even with your title, I couldn't tell what the patches of light were, but the effect and soft lighting were very nice. Your color balance is a little off (the stems look blue to me), but a good effort overall. ;-)

Very cool surface effects here. Looks like some great refracted light through a vase (as your title would suggest ) to bring some extra interest to this shot :)

The most striking thing about this picture is, as I'm sure you intended, the sort of impressionistic patches of light at the top center. Looks like light being refracted through the vase you mention in the title. I've often taken pictures of such refractions by themselves, but never had the creative presence of mind to integrate that into a more complex composition. Bravo for good work.
