These are beautiful! I'm botanically challenged, though. What types of flowers are they?

Color correction much? Or is that natural? Either way, they're beautiful.

Thanks!

There's no color correction in these, I don't think.

The top one's a hibiscus, I know that. I don't know the names of the other ones offhand, but the middle one produces a cluster of cute multicolored little flowers (you're looking at where the stems branch) which I'll try to post some of next week, and the top one is a small (about 1-2 inches across) purple flower with -- as you can see -- a yellow star in the center.

Thanks for these very "damn-I-want-to-copy-that-style" photos! Check out these shots of works from Lino Tagliapietra and Dale Chihuly! Just check out my glass photos-packed article on art glass and Carnival glass.
