Artificial Lighting

Since lighting is one of our challenges for the month, I thought I would use some artificial lighting to highlight a photo.  This photo of white pear blossoms  kind of needed some perking up. First I changed the photo to b/w.   I added some directional lighting in Photoshop Elements and did some burning.  I guess I just like moody.:)

Camera settings: F/6.3 , 1/100 sec., ISO 100, focal length 37 mm.  No flash.
