[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This cactus (haven't found species yet) has multiple flowers that bloom only once, only at night and die the next morning. Full bloom usually takes effect 4 - 5 hours after sunset. The colors are more vivid, but somehow lost it when uploaded. Also looks darker on site TN.

Hi Paige!

First of all thanks for your honest comment on my post!

I see this shot could only be made at night, and regarding that it turned out quite well. Still, using of flash is very much visible. There are ways to light up a subject from other directions, not only from the front, I suggest next time try to do that. The other thing is I find the crop a bit too thight, the picture is a bit "crowded" to me.
Details and colors are fine for me too, so go on working on other matters as well ;)

Best regards,

Hello Paige,

an nice picture from this flower with good detail in the white petals.

fine colours.
