I already had an image ready for this challenge showing the gerbera against a blue sky with a few clouds when suddenly the sky changed from sunny to sunny/dark cloudy.
Had to do this handheld and quickly because the weather started brightening up again almost immediately.
I love the effect of the bright flower against the moody background. Hope the voters do too.

i love the contrast in this picture! And the flower looks larger than life, how did you manage to get this shot and how much, if any, did you have to do in photoshop?

Very well done. I like the almost abstract look of the flower. Good luck.
