    Not quite so keen on this one Krishna, I find the background is a good contrast but the colour is a little dominant, I suspect if you modified the green background it would help emphasise the iridescence - it seems to pick up the seed heads, I think a different tone would help.

    Thank you for the comment.

    Can you explain further.

    The background is in shade. This was backlight at sunset.

    The colors in this are great. Image quality looks very good for ISO 6400. I can't decide if this should be shot very tight or very loose. I like the framing on the bottom right not so much the top left though. Nice to see something different.
