I'm having problems seeing the image. Apparently pbase is acting up again. (I had the same problem viewing one of Harris's posts a few minutes ago.) I could see the top 20%, and that looked pretty good. I'll check back later and see it I can see the whole thing. :?
Your lily is beautiful. You have captured every detail of this lily and the lighting is superb.
I spent some time with deep orange lilies in the resident garden at work. Unfortunately, I cannot manipulate their position or step inside the boundaries of their gardens, so I am stuck with annoying obstacles. Thank you for the image, now I know what to work on with respect to lighting and composition.
