Gorgeous! The contrast is very effective in bringing out the classic five-petal shape of the flowers. This has been a very lovely series (I think yesterday's was my favorite so far.) I also want to thank you for all your visits and kind comments!

Wow.. neatly lighted shot!

Kheoh, this is really good work!

Aidan from Seoul, South Korea

Kheoh, I like this series. This one is my favourite - I think because the colours are quite monotone compared to the others. It would be interesting to see these in black and white with more subtle lighting to bring out more of the detail.
Also, thanks for your many visits.

Amazing. Really liking the past few posts, your control of the lighting and framing of your subject is very impressive.

tu as la dent dure dans tes commentaires mais la qualité de tes photos te le permette. Ce violet est parfaitement traité même dans le slumières hautes. Bravo

you're right there is much contrast, but the completely black background feels unnatural to me. flower shots tends to be soft and elegant instead of edgy and in your face. nice take.

@Kelvin Chan: Yeah,you are right about that,but I wanted to try something new perspective on flower shot ,haha,Thanks for your comment,Kelvin ;)
