    Super series Mike. Most anything with backlighting is favorable to me, and this is no exception. Deep, rich colors shinning through with the black BKGD and high detail is an unbeatable combination.

    I like that back lighting on this one.

    Mike, this is a very nice capture of this pretty flower. I like the back lighting and the colors are perfect. I like where your main focus is too! Nice job!

    Love those Anthers, Mike. The back lighting makes them pop. Beautiful
