My thanks to Justin, Sherry and Ramona! I was trying to find a different slant by putting the flowers on a table and I lay under the table and shoot up. The sun was at a horrible angle(about 2pm) but being early fall, the sky was crisp blue. I enlisted a couple of filters, a polarizer and a star and turned the camera upside down so the flash would bounce up. I blab on...Once again my thanks! #1901866
