I was getting ready to retire for the night in my hotel room. I turned off the lights and noticed this white flower practically glowing from the table near the bed. The blinds were drawn behind it giving it a nice background. I set my 5D Mk II to 6400 ISO and laid it on the table, not having a tripod. The flower did not separate from the blinds very well, so I lit it with my iPhone from above, shielding the blinds from the white light with my hand. The exposure was .6 seconds, aperture f/4.0 and the lens focal length was 76mm.
