Very cool set-up and capture, Laurie. This is a very interesting prickly looking flower and the POV makes it even more unusual looking.
Now that BP has removed the drop shadow frames, I'm thinking images like this need a very narrow stroke outline to define their space. My gallery background is black so I'm trying to remember to do a white one when the image background is black or almost black and a black outline when the image background is white or almost white. Kind of a nuisance :)

I know what you all mean about all the white space. I have just been trying to figure out how to outline without distracting from the image...will keep working on that one!
