Very striking image, almost spooky.
I think, the vignetting worked well.

Thank you, Yoshi-sensei. I was so struck by how much light this flower gives off on its own. It’s really quite amazing.

Like a sunburst 😀

Yes! Thank you! 🙂

Wow, that’s stunning. It’s like it’s putting on a show – love the spotlight.

Thank you, Richard. The light here is all natural. The only processing I applied is the vignette. It’s amazing how brightly lit this flower is all by itself!

Beautiful. Love the lighting.

Thank you, Maralee. The flower is doing this all on its own (the lighting, I mean). 🙂 I’ve only applied a vignette in post processing. The orange center just lights up the dark purple like a flame.

Aptly titled. Beautiful.

Thank you, Elena!

WOW! Now, that should help to warm a few cold visitors!

This is stunning…beautiful processing 🙂

Oh, to burn so….

This little burns brightly, doesn’t it. I look forward to printing this one for Miss Mary.

Thank you. The flower gets all the credit. 🙂
Just fantastic! I love purple and yellow.

A wonderful combination, isn’t it.
March 21, 2013 at 2:09 pm
Oh wow ! Mystical almost other worldly feel. Love it !

Thank you. That’s very nice of you. I appreciate your visit.
That’s a beautiful picture of a beautiful thing!

Thank you, Allen. I was so happy to find this (and many others) in Miss Mary’s garden. Her garden is coming to life. 🙂

Stunning! Is this a crocus?? I have a purple-with-white-stripes and a nearly-orange center that looks much like this…but your photograph is much much much better than mine! (And I really liked mine, lol.)
March 21, 2013 at 12:26 pm
Yes, it is a crocus in Miss Mary’s garden. I’m sure your photograph is lovely!!
March 21, 2013 at 2:11 pm
Fabulous colors and lighting!
March 21, 2013 at 1:08 pm
I really liked this one, but now it’s time for you to get to work on you photo book!!!!!!!!!
March 21, 2013 at 1:47 pm
Thanks, Dad! I’m on it! 🙂
So beautiful, mysterious, and spiritual.
Thank you, Lynn. That’s such a nice comment. I’m glad you like it.

In love with these colours and says so much about winter/spring turnaround 🙂
March 22, 2013 at 8:18 pm
Thank you. Yes, spring is on the way here. We’re so close!

Beautiful composition. I was sure I commented on this one already, must be my medication. Love the inner glow.
March 23, 2013 at 9:26 pm
Thank you. By the way, I saw somewhere, maybe a reply on your blog, that you’ve been sick. I hope you’re doing better now?!
March 24, 2013 at 10:00 pm
Yes, it has been a slow recovery. The antibiotics are helping, but my eating & sleeping system is totally off. Thanks for asking.

Sometimes one is allowed to look at photographs you would have liked to shoot yourself. This is one…
Kind regards from Stefan
