Uploaded: June 24, 2004


Backlit wine cup, in front of out of focus Mexican feathergrass, giving a water colour paper/ painted feel. Canon 100mm Macro wide open to throw out the background. Shot on tripod, mirror lock up, cable release, 1/125s in bright sunlight, using center weighted metering and opening up 1 stop over the reading off the flower.
