Birds of Paradise...

I really, really like this! If it were mine, I might try cloning out the pollen at the bottom of the flower, as it's a bit distracting! You are to be commended on conceptualizing this shot and executing it. Abstract flowers are difficult to do. #508245

I really appreciate your comments Sipho! I see your point regarding the pollen :)... On the other hand, it can be seen as the source of the flame, perhaps the spark? But I've made a copy without it, and the feel seems good as well. God bless! #3201663

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
