Stunning capture, Gary. Was its colour version in the PU magazine?

Many thanks for all your comments- reassuring as I was not sure how the rather graphic quality created by the backlighting would go down.

Thanks Gabor, That would be 'Honesty', featuring a refracted image of a flower- similar setup but no backlighting.

I sell more of this type of shot(as cards) than anything else. The backlighting of this one seems to have gone down fairly well so fingers crossed!

Cheers,

Gary
