From what I understand this is a Moon Flower, and they only bloom at night. This one belongs to my friend Mari Cline, she waited all summer for it to bloom and finially one morning at daybreak she found this. The original was taken with a generic instomatic and the print was scanned into Photoshop where we croped it and added some lighting effects. Overall I think the results were worth waiting all summer for!

It was absolutely worth it. Very beautiful, and I think you did well in the postprocessing, it really looks like the flower is shining like the moon.
I feel that I'd like to crop the picture a bit closer to the flower, but the framing you have chosen is not bad either. Great shot!
