The wifes Christmas cactus is beginning to bloom again. I had to try a natural light shot of one of the blossoms with my new 5d. The wind was blowing a steady 15 knots and waiting for a steady shot took some time but I got one that looks good to me using ISO 400 and a 28-75 1:2.8 Tamron lens. Any C&C is welcomed! Image is straight from the camera with only cropping and a slight bit of sharpening done to it.

Beautiful shot. We used to grow Christmas Cactus varieties, so I appreciate their beauty.
