Tomas Turecek from Czech Republic

Hmmm, delicious! :) Great composition, excellent colours and lightning and amazing dropplets. Superb! May I ask if you shot it indoors against a background or was it natural scene?

@Tomas Turecek: Set up indoors at a photo workshop in Montana - the yellow flower, the iris and the macro gear... Thanks, Tomas!
