    Taken in St Petersburg Florida with sigma 30mm. Played a little more than usual in LR4 with this one. I'll probably redo it a bunch more times but this is what I got for now. Comments are welcome. Btw, I have no idea what kind of flower that is.

    Great, I love shots like this, especially the way the orange of the sunlight blends with the yellow/red gradients of the flower petals.

    That's a Bird of Paradise. Usually seen only in tropical climes. Or in greenhouses in non-tropical climes. ;)
