This is one of those painted daisies. It was actually blue before I color shifted in PS. The circles are drops of glycerin sprayed on the flower. It is lit with two desk lamps with spot lights for bulbs. One from almost directly behind and under and the other from under and to the side. Shot with my 50mm lens with extension rings attached to allow me the super shallow DOF and the ability to get the macro type shot. Editing was very limited to RAW conversion, hue/sat adjustments, levels, USM and Neat Image. This was an experiment as I had never realy used the extension rings before.
