Alone in the Dark, by Wizuk

Wizuk (real name Antony Scott) is, unlike our first two POTD featured photographers this week, a regular here. We've enjoyed several of his flower still-lifes that enjoy the most exquisite of lighting techniques. Today's example is no exception, with the electric neon glow from below, blossoming out to teh rich red at the top, meanwhile bathed in an inky blackness. The contrasts are profound and make a very strong image.
Would you like one of your pictures featured on DPNow's POTD?
We are always on the look out for great pictures posted to the user-galleries here on DPNow. POTDs are selected from the gallery and featured every week day. The gallery facility here is completely free; all you need to do is register as a user on our discussion forum and you will get an automatic 25MB of space, which is good for around 125 pictures uploaded at web resolution, about 200K per picture. At the time of writing we had almost 17,000 pictures on the galleries and it's well worth a browse.
Picture of the month
At the end of each month we will select our favourite image of the month and declare a Picture of the Month.
The DPNow Golden Gallery
Our ultimate accolade, the DPNow Golden Gallery, is reserved for what we feel are the very finest images. We invite anyone to submit their pictures for inclusion in the Golden Gallery. Why not have a look at the Golden Gallery submission form? The vast majority are usually rejected, which is why we feel that the ones we do feature are extra special.
