Beautifully done. Well composed, but the way you used the light to outline the thorns really makes them stand out in juxtaposition to to the delicate beauty of the flower.

Thank you very much, Minnie. The lighting was very much what was provided. Some burning and dodging helped a bit.

Chuck, you're right. Being in the right place just when the sun wants to illuminate something is a blessing.

I've been having a hard time with these, probably because I try to shoot them in the middle of the day. Well done! S-
