f/ 8.0, 1/16 sec., EV -1/3, ISO-200, studio lighting, tripod mounted, macro mode on camera with 10x close up filter, 08:03 PM, Philadelphia, PA. Bought a garden bouquet that had dahlias, zinnias, marigolds and spider asters in it. Took one of the spider asters and sprayed it with water and set the remaining bouquet flowers behind it.
