This was shot at night under one of those long life flourescent lights at 5s exposure. Being back at work, it is difficult to shoot during the day... :(

I used Picasa to process this in the early stages (*gasp*) to add the soft focus ring. In PS I then adjusted saturation and cloned out some distracting spots on the leaves.

I know this is Expert Editing but I felt that this shot did not necessitate it.

This probably won't do that well but let's see.

The lighting is nearly harsh, but I like the soft glow you've given this.

Great lighting, and good choice of subject. I see the effect you were going for, but it's a bit too soft for my taste.

I normally don't like abstract type shots such as this, but this one works quite well! Great exercise in lighting for effect!

Not completely filling the frame, but close enough. I like the details of this email, and like the slightly blurred look on the right.
