    Went out tonight to relax and to get a little inspired for today's meeting for my next paid video project. While walking in the dark, I found this lonely flower. It was the only one I've seen during two hours of walking around, so I thought as it was as lonely as I in that situation, I could as well spend some time with it. What do you think of the result?

    The foreground was lit by the LED on the back of my phone.

    Brilliant shot there Poki!!! :thumbup:

    IF i had something to comment (big "IF" since this shot is out of my skills anyway :D ) would be the little distracting red light (?) on the top of the hill - doesn't look like a star right?

    The red dot is the tip of a TV antenna. It's kinda like a trademark of the region, so I have to let it in.

    And hey, just try to shoot something like this. It's not that hard once you figured the basics of night photography out.

    Wow, I really like this. Never thought of "bokeh star trails".

    I've used my iPhone light, too on occasion. It can be quite dramatic. This is beautiful.
