Now THIS is the reason why I bought that glass rose! This photo is actually going to be used for one of my assignments at school, but you know I would have done this either way because its such a cool idea hahaha. Now this is something I'm really happy about, I like the way it turned out, though just like a lot of things this ain't an original idea, I'm not that creative hahaha. This is my atempt at a photo someone else did on Flickr. I saw it a few days ago while looking for a good example for my assignment and knew I had to try it out myself.

This photo is a composite... If you couldn't guess. The green stem and leaves are made up of 6 photos and the flower itself is made up of 11 different photos, so its a 17 shot composite. Another note to mention is the fact that this photo was taken upside down and I just rotated it so the water looks like its flying upwards. Well this was a fun and messy shoot, also an expensive one hahaha what with the $80 glass rose, I was pretty worried that it would fall and break on me during the shoot but luckily it didn't.
