Cereus Flower

While I was playing with this image it reminded me of jewelry - I wanted to put jewels in the four directions on the circle. If you look closely the center is a dark blue - I could put lapis in the center -it is a semiprecious stone that is usually rich azure blue. The gold are the stamens of the flower. It really is a night blooming cereus getting ready to close, the full sun was on it for a while this morning illuminating it's delicate petals.
