    The dark one. But really don't like the vignette on either.

    Probably because I expect to see a vignette get darker, it appears "wrong" to my eye.

      I prefer the dark one without any vignette or with an invers one, more clear in the center. Regards, H

          In the second version (without vignettes) the white one. This is a personal opinion - if you're going to use the black I think it needs to be darker, with the object further away from the background.

          Shoot me if you think I'm wrong...

            I agree about the white background. I would probaly put some more space behind the flower as to soften the shadow.

              The white one was my first choice also, but now you have removed the vignette I like them both.

              The flower on the white one is more centralised which suits my eye.

              The flower has photographed well in both cases and is very pretty.

                White background for me also, watch the sap from these it can cause skin damage if it is the plant I think it is.

                  I also like the plain white background

                    The dark definitely but would like to see it much darker. That would really make the lillies jump out.

                      I have moved the flower forward about 4 inches as suggested by Carol and I am happy with this shot. Thanks for all your help John.

                          Both have their merits but the black background really emphasizes the colours of these beautiful flowers.

                            Yes John I have to agree with you they do make wonderful cut flowers.

                              Glad it worked! Lovely before, but think the darker background really helps the flowers stand out.
