Phil David Alexander Morris from Canada

That extra bit of light given the flower, really transports this image,
it seems to have more depth, the image would have been a lot flatter
looking without it. The image is so beautiful and yet fragile looking,
the image astounds and impresses because it is impeccable, flawless.
