15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Separating flower

I took this unedited picture in a completely dark room using a long shutter speed. I flashed both incandescent and LED lights to provide the different colors. The incandescent light is the red side and the purple is a result of the LED. It is only in the darkness that true colors are revealed.
