A beautiful lily, Fabs! Wonderful light and shadows...you might clone out a few of the whiter specs in the water.

An interesting use of some strong light.
Bright colours of flower work very well with dark bg.

I love the light and shadows on this, Fabs! The comp looks good and for some reason I can't put my finger on, I REALLY like the reflection of the stem. I might have cropped that out but I'm glad you didn't.

Lovely colour on the lily and I think the reflection of the stem in the water gives it a more artistic flare.

Hey Fabs,
Nice to see that the light didn't overpower the delicate colors of this lily.....one of my favorites! I think the reflection does add a certain depth to the image and adds to the overall appeal!

I'm usually very resritictive about black and dark bgs but this is just superb,Fabs!
I love the reflected stem which vanishes into nothingness.
