f4, 1/800th sec., ISO 400. Taken at Balboa Park 15 April 2010. 70-200mmf2.8 lens, stacked extension tubes. I used the "shoot through" technique with a similar colored flower in front to get the soft color in the lower to mid part of the frame.

This is a fun technique to try. Once you get the hang of it you can get some really great images. Great job Gary.
You can try it with differing colors in front too. #9042917
