Shot these flowers with Canon 50mm prime, with a small christmas bulb for lighting. I set the camera at 5 sec and painted the flower moving the light around it.

Beautifully done. Sharp as pin, and the colours pop out of the blackness so well. Great photo!

Nice spot of light and very pretty shot. I think the saturation could be bumped up a bit. Hope you do well in the challenge.
