I always loved photos of plants and flowers but rare are the times when photographers take those photos with some originality and, after a while, the topic itself becomes boring. Yet and again one more close-up of a flower with pretty colors...
However your use of mirroring was utterly clever. Not only you picked a very good angle and a very interesting type of flower but you also made it look like something completely new and out of this world without making it look weird. The mirroring here is very very subtle and sometimes I find myself doubting if that effect is actually present but I spent way too many minutes already, looking closely at each detail of the flower testing it... You have created something new and shot it with mastery.
Thank you for reviving the flower photography and congratulations on your DD. It's well deserved.
