Clipped off some Magnolia blossoms and hung them above the scanner and then messed around with PS. The blossoms are much too large for this technique (in my opinion) as the scanner could only light the front edge. This image is dedicated to my friends who don't like skulls or dark depressing images - though this is still a dark moody type of image to me...

I love this! The colors are amazing! And so is the clarity. I am not familiar with the technique, but I think it works beautifully. I think the lighting is actually perfect - it creates this moody feeling and old school painting, chiaroscuro effect. Gorgeous.
And thank you. I think I am one of those friends you mention. :)

Beautiful image!! I gotta give this a 5!
We all seem to struggle with art, smashing every detail into the smallest of spaces. I'm almost certainly one of the biggest offenders.
So much can be said with so little, I can't remember why I try so hard to do otherwise.
