About This Image

I'd been looking unsuccessfully for a decent flower to shoot for the contest in the middle of a drought, when I noticed our cactus doing its semi-annual thing. Knowing the flower would be limp in a few hours, I quickly draped it with a black cloth, shot in macro mode with electronic flash, using a couple pieces of foam packaging material as a diffuser and a reflector. Cropped and tweaked a little in Corel Paint Shop Pro.

The light turned out really well on the cactus flower.

Lovely capture, the pale pink petals almost look like tussue paper, they look so delicate.
