Instant fav! You took full advantage of the natural visual elements of this pretty Iris & made a really nice abstract that would look good hanging on the wall. Looks like natural light, or at least slightly directional light. WTG!

Very cool. I never thought of lighting an iris in this fashion.

Beautiful! The glow and the softness make it seem like an underwater plant.
