Shot with the D70 and Sigma 105 EX DG. Comments are well appreciated. Thanks in Advance :wink:
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
How about now?
I have one word for this picture............Gorgeous!!
Much better, excellent in fact.
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
...learned from shutterbug magazine.
Re: Black background setup
Thanks, Shahed. Your talent never ceases to amaze me!
My gosh, that's beautiful! It's breath taking. Thanks for joining the forum and showing us your work.
Pretty outstanding Shahed. I am very impressed.
I looked in the gallery also. Boy nothing has the effect like the black glass. That is a wow effect for sure.
Thank you for sharing.
Did you use flash ?
Looking at your initial picture I assumed there was above light but your setup doesn't have one.
Not for this shot.
