Two pictures I blended together...one of the daffodil and one of fire. I filled the empty space behind the flower with the flames, sometimes rotating the picture of the flames or using different parts to fill the space. You can't really see the fire because it blendid in after the Radial blur-but its there! I did several color adjustments, selective blur, selective sharpening,dodge/burn, some cloning out of dust, and Neat Image, the image was also flipped horizontally and 180 degress if I remember right!
I placed the daffodil in front of a yellow lamp and misted the whole daffodil with lots of water. I also used a flashlight from underneath the help with lighting.
I had to use my 75-300 MM set on manual focus because it did a better macro job then my standard lens.

So juicy I think my screen is wet! Nicely composed and shot (quality of light and DOF are excellent).

Meets the challenge for me! I just wish the center stood out more instead it simply blended with the rest of the flower. I like this nonetheless.
