A new plant for me and very attractive at that. I like it's pretty off white flowers which grow at the base of each leaf in an alternate pattern. The veins of the leaves are very beautiful and appear almost as if illuminated. The lighting must have been somewhat challenging, yet you managed the exposure quite well. Just a tiny bit of overexposure on a few of the light colored petals. Overall a pleasing shot!
