Ah.. Sunder said it perfect. The side lighting brought out textures we'd otherwise miss, and you've managed good saturation without appearing over the top. Nice job.

Never seen this flower so beautiful! sercète mysterious and wonderfully! Dulcie a wonderful job! (To answer your last comment, I never use the Orton effect, which is losing a little definition in my opinion)
