As far as the theme part of it goes, I think sometimes the theme descriptions can be so vague, so it is hard to tell what really can be on theme or not. And yeah, you're right about that last part about blurring it. I don't think that's what they had in mind (but I'm not in their mind ), but since it is not specific, I guess it's open. I do love this photo though, it stands out from ALL the rest of them in the contest!

Lights
avatar k5683
k5683 says:

thanks for the explanation. I know how to do some of it, but I guess it was the light on the flower that I wasn't sure about. A snoot on the light is the honeycomb thing right?

Very nice, great effects with those lights. Thanks for that info and good luck Author

k5683 says:

This is an absolutely amazing photo, but you should read the theme description again very closely. "Just the head of the flower, with a few inches of the stem if necessary.
Your photo can show absolutely nothing else besides this." Could you at least send me a private message and tell me how you did this because I love it and want to try it!
