A wonderful image. The background gives it a soft touch and makes the flowers stand out. Good job.

Thank you, Kavitha and Philip! The main effect was created by combining two images in Photoshop. Each image was shot at a slightly different exposure and location. In Photoshop, each image was on a separate layer. I changed the Blend Mode of the top layer to Multiply and added a Gaussian Blur - about 17, I think. Then I adjusted the opacity of the top layer.
