Mysterious indeed, I am reminded of fairies cavorting after dark.

I havenít a clue how you did this, but interestingly this is!

Although the background is entirely black, this novel picture is the sibling of your previous images with pastel backgrounds.

Somehow you have touched this work with some delicate technique and it just works! I like being mystified!

Hi Asher

It is is all about the light, the ambient light.
The shot was done during sunset in front of some kind of a small forest (our garden is situated on a hillside) below the garden. The sun light enlighted the silhouettes of the colombines bolls and the remaining petals.
Color was a bit manipulated in PS (with a little help from Doug Landreth's Photomorphis software) - that's it.
