This photo was captured on my 50th birthday, in my front yard late at night with a hand held flashlight for lighting. I decided against multiple images of Calla Lilies, going for simple, greyscale to highlight the shape and design of this elegant flower. Thanks for all your votes and comments. This photo moves up onto my home page, next to another photo of Calla Lilies from last year.

Very nice. Love the backlighting showing through the veins in the lily. Upper left edge of flower could be a tiny big sharper.

I hate pictures of flowers...unless they are better than my own! (okay...not hard to do) But this one is one of those "wait up a minute, I'll catch up and knock your socks off" type of prints.

i think your lighting is great, the setup and arrangement is also great. Good work!!

Love it, lighting is excellent. Maybe a touch dark on the right side, but just a touch. 9
