Thank you so much for your generous comments, Stan. I value your opinion considering that you are one of the best flower photographers I know!!! I tried to use the light the best way I could, and I was happy with the way it turned out. I took this for a class I was taking, and all of my classmates were across the road shooting these flowers with front lighting. #1488389

The lighting on here is very sensitive--perfect! Congratulations on being "chose" for discussion. Mary #1544723
