Fower Study

A little bit about these flowers. The Fijian name is Vutu, I do not know the English or Latin names. I used a black back drop with LED and incandescent light. My camera was tripod mounted with 8-20 second exposures at F22.
Cheers

Amazing! The flowers look almost like they are made of fiber-optic material. Very unusual, and beautiful.

They remind me of fireworks also! Your lighting and backdrop were the perfect way to shoot these! They look like the silk tree's flower, what we call mimosa in the southern US.
