I saw these flowers lit up from behind during an outing and decided to capture the beautiful light riming through the delicate translucent petals. I worked my way round them several times and decided to crouch on the ground and shoot it from a low pov.

Cropped minimally to remove a slight distraction and levels adjusted in Lightroom 3.0. Hope you like it and thanks for your comments and critiques.

I really like your choice of perspective... Love the light coming through the flowers, and even the shadows visible here and there. Lovely soft colors. Well done.

Very nice composition and excellent use of backlighting. Great use of the dof with nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hi Dilshan,
Very artistic work where you are showing a lovely demonstration of how to use backlighting and shallow DOF!
A very sharp image from such a low POV to obtain a blue BG of the sky.
Very neat work.
My regards,
