    I really like the lighting in the plant shots you've been posting. This one's no exception. The bright pink flowers add some vibrancy.

    Thanks Antarctican. I shoot this plant once most years, and try to come up with a different approach each time. Here I tried a dark, shadowy background, and gave the blossom a bit of a glow.

    Regards, Tony

    Really love the lighting... just seems a bit grainy to me though.

    I really like the shot. The lighting is nice and the dark background works well.

    I have two of these plants. I get one flower on each one when they bloom. The older plant blooms only once a year [and not every year] and its either at thanksgiving or Christmas. This year it was Christmas. The younger plant usually blooms twice a year giving me one flower near Valentines day and one around Easter or Memorial Day. So far this year it has not bloomed at all.
