I like the composition a lot.. Simple and effective.
Your use of DOF and the rule of thirds makes this a very impressive shot.
very nice shot with nice details,dark background is great.in Persian we say "narges" to this flower
Adrian, an extremely well taken shot. It seems as though fungi has quite a following here on TN, and I can see why from this shot. I also liked your choice of lens, it is a great compliment to any SLR. I see you also use an "exotic" flash setup- you are really into this. I find your notes truly informative- to me that can be 50% of the photo in some cases. This shot would have impressed me without the notes, but I wouldn't have had a clue as to what it was. (I honestly thought it might be some sort of little sea anemone, or some such- LOL).
