And a gorgeous one it is! Well done Larry!
Larry, Beautiful flower very nicely rendered. Dark background makes the whit flower pop up. Lighting is lovely with subtle shades of color and sharp throughout. Very well done.
Larry: Marvelous portrait of a beautiful subject. Superb lighting and I love the subtle tones. Most excellent. >=))>
I like the lighting on the iris and the subtle pink hue coming through.
Great white management on this iris. You retained the detail and flow of the petals and set it against a dark background which makes it stand out nicely. Well done.
