    I agree with the others Otmar - a beautiful piece go work, great colours, well lit. The rain drops help too.

    Both are very nice indeed, but the first one is special, almost three dimensional.

    Thanks for your kind comments.
    @MilT0s: There is nothing real special about lighting techniques, I usually take flashlight(s), sometimes manually controlled, sometimes TTL, mainly together with rather high aperture values.
    I use to make a series of pictures of the same subject with different settings, and lateron on during processing I decide, whats the most atmospheric one.

    Hi Otmar, so am i correct in thinking that you under expose the background/ambient by a lot, and then light the flower with your flashes?

    Beautifully done Otmar - as others have said, the lighting is very well done and the images special.
