Wild Rose Backlit

Well, Im not sure if I'm quite done with this yet but I figure since it's Easter weekend and we're in Spring it's a good a time as any to put it on my blog, I may tweek it a bit more with a few more highlights that aren't really in the reference photo, just because I think it might need to be brightened up a bit in the middle. But.. I loved how the light passed through the gentle soft petals, the original photo is a white flower, but I've allways loved the peach and pink ones, so I used those colors instead. I hope that all of us find a little beauty and love in this wonderful holiday weekend! Peace be with you all and Happy Easter.

This is a perfect example of a backlit flower. I love how it glows but is not harsh. Very nice, Lori!
