This is another view of the same plant, on a different day. You'll note the change in background. In the posted image, the background is completely natural. This one is literally manipulated. I held the stem, and twisted the plant until I had the nearby pond for background. It also helped with the direction of the light. I like to leave flowers as I find them. But that does allow for a some adjustments. I prefer this image, and used this one for the photo album.
