Pretty Snowdrop

Here is another snowdrop shot, this one in portrait format. Both images were taken on a Canon G7 compact, a gem of a camera in my opinion, as it gives me much the same control as my SLR. I used it in manual exposure mode, and adjusted the exposure in an attempt to try and keep the highlights (on the petals) from 'blowing out', which seems to have worked ok. I also added a little graduated blue to the top right to keep the bright sky from becoming a blank expanse of nothingness.
