Awesome composition and lighting. Could you maybe post a line or two on the setup? I'm stumped how you manage to light the flower but not end up with flash reflecting off the plexiglass.

No not pouting I was going to say that before rollover, just didn't, so I thought I would now, like I said, great overall shot, just doesn't inspire me, like some other shots here did.
10/29/2012 04:00:33 AM
Perfect as always, Oliver. Congrats on the blue!

I'm gonna bet this is getting DNMC'ed to death... I thought about using my car hood or something similar, but figured it'd be seen as a "mirror".

Great shot, hopefully the voters won't be too silly.

Very nice studio shot. Great lighting and details.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/22/2012 08:08:10 AM
this is beautiful but a apart of me wants to say a highly mirror'd surface is practically a mirror and not really the spirit of the challenge, i wonder how other voters will treat this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/22/2012 08:02:51 AM
WOW you nailed it.
Just perfect.
When I look at this I smell flowers and a ribbon.
