I originaly shot this for the macro topic, but thought that the lights in the BG looked alot like the moon.

Stamen from a flower in my mom's kitchen. The lights in the back are a reflection on a bottle in the background.

Shot in RAW using my Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 @ 300mm in macro mode. Converted using EVU and changing WB to 2800º.

In PS&, mostly saturation and contrast adjustments. A few healings here and there. USM and slight crop.

Very interesting composition, with a nice mood created by the contrast of the Lily stamens (they are from a Lily and rotated 90 degrees aren't they?) and the triple reflections appearing as they are coming over the horizon (actually the petals right?).
A well-deserved ((8)).
