15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Illuminated Rose

This picture is completely unedited!! I took an extended exposure in complete darkness and shined a light on the flower in bursts and zoomed in and out to create this effect. I wanted to show the beauty without the distraction of the scene around it.
