Very well done Michael. I have done that on occasion too, hold the flowers or set up the stage for a better look.
Great job, beautiful with the background.

You know, one of the problems we encounter when judging the quality of the work of a great artist is that we tend to judge his work against the quality of other workds he has produced instead of against the quality of work produced by the huddled masses. This shot is beautiful and the placement of such dramatic colors against a black background really enhances them and draws out the color even more. Great work.

The clarity is AMAZING. I can see every dew drop perfectly, and the colors are very vivid and crisp as well. This is awesome. EXCELLENT work.

Another one for my desktop photo collection that I cycle according to my moods. Kinda will keep you guessing what that mood will be.

Bird of Paradise isn't typically one of my favorite flowers, but this photo is just stunning.
