    That it is! Love the light and it is stunning in black and white!

  • Thanks very much, Kristi – you were very quick! Calla lilies have such strong shapes that they often work well in black and white.

    Wonderful capture and I love the lighting.

  • Thanks very much, Ann! The light was nicely diffused, which I find works well for flowers (especially white ones).

    Very elegant indeed, and I like the way the out-of-focus leaves, bottom left, echo the curves of Lady Lily.

  • Thank you for noticing that subtlety in the leaves, Bette. Your monitor must be pretty well calibrated. :)
