Hi Tom,
You have presented this image very well. Personally I would use the background of the image and darken it which possibly would give a dark green rather than black - personal preference.

By looking at your details, I am not sure why you would use F32 for 8 seconds? Would you consider F2.8/F4 at a much faster shutter speed - the lower F stop would give a much sharper image?   Posted: 11/06/2023 23:21:17

This was shot in my studio, so there was no "Natural" background.   Posted: 11/17/2023 13:45:20

Happy Thanksgiving, Tom. I admire the lighting and interesting composition of this capture. I can imagine the delicate texture of the petals. Great job!   Posted: 11/23/2023 17:33:43
