Wow, I'll say your welcome here. Absolutely gorgeous image. Tell me about the reflection, is it black plastic?? I do have one critique if you don't mind, that is to ask why you let the plant touch the top of the frame. Even a 1/4 inch would have kept it contained, much like the bottom. The colors are very nice and the focus spot on. Excellent.

Absolutely Marvelous, Shahed! I really want to know how you did this! How did you get these effects?

Hi d_ip, simple, clean and very attractive picture. The colors, the reflection and the black background all contribute to its attractiveness. And if you dont' mind, putting the flower a bit further away from the frame will make it perfect. My regards

Yeah, excellent. Looking at the first version, I didn't notice the water droplets on the petals. These droplets give a very nice touch to the flower indeed.

Black background setup

Here is how my setup looks like

I used black velvet on the background; it doesn’t have the light reflection and is darker than black foam core. On the bottom, I used a black 20"x20" glass (20x20 glass and can of black spray paint). I did some cool effects with that, here's the link

I looked in the gallery also. Boy nothing has the effect like the black glass. That is a wow effect for sure.

Beautiful images.

Thank you for sharing.

Shahed,

Did you use flash ?

Looking at your initial picture I assumed there was above light but your setup doesn't have one.
