Super shot. Might star in the next release of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers". Looks a little other worldly with the illuminated fuzzy outline. Creative and nice.

I like the fact that it is really not a silhouette , but a shady figure... that light offers great outline of the plant. The tonality is certainly pleasing and you framed your subject well. I canít decide if you could have tried a bw version ....

I don't usually appreciate geraniums very well, but this shot surely does make them show differently.

Thanks Michail! I will have to try a B&W conversion and see how it comes out.

Thanks Angky! I actually like photographing geraniums. They provide a lot of interesting macro opportunities.
