A Macro Flower Session

Digital original
My mother gave me this single Christmas Cactus flower, thinking it would serve as a good macro subject - she was absolutely right. I quickly settled on a white backdrop for it, with the intent of keeping the results as luminous as possible.

Using extension tubes, I managed to create a composition that focused on the petals of the flower, and left out all but the smallest hint of coloud.

The above image reminds me of pink Christmas candies - chicken bones...exactly the same colour!
