    Beautiful still life: I love the black-on-black of the vase and background, and the shape of the vase is really nice. Did you use seamless paper for the background? It looks like there is some texture on the "floor" which I also really like.

Thank you for commenting, Colleen. The background is a combination of black velvet material and flat black mat board.

Truly a beautiful image. Could you fill me in on what a Buzz filter is? Not familiar with that.

Thank you very much for commenting, Donna, Diane, and Frank.
Frank, the Buzz filter is part of some plug-in software you can find at www.fo2pix.com/main.php It creates a painterly effect without losing edge sharpness.

Hi Ron,
Love the elegance of your line, and the black background is mysterious, and beautiful. Great lighting.
