I had a lot of fun shooting this one, and was pleased with the outcome. I used a crystal vase with the flowers hand painted on there. I used a flashlight for the backlighting, and covered the flashlight with a t-shirt to tone down the lighting a bit.

Resized, changed hue, added border, saved for web.

That's intriguing. I'm curious to learn more details about your composition. I love the subtle flower reflection as it looks more like a real flower than the main subject.

Well this is not a bad photo but it´s just too dark for my taste.

The crystal flower is very striking, nice contract. I personally may have have the crystal flower a little more centred, however that is personal taste. Very nice shot!

Nice sharpness and nice use of the light but the subject is a tad dull.
