Behind the Orchid

Here's another exercise from the photography workshop I just took. In this exercise, I was to stare at something for a minimum of 15 minutes and then take JUST ONE picture of it. (The "Zen" theory of photography.) Here's the photo I took:

After 15 minutes of staring at the silk orchid, I actually took a picture of the interesting negative space formed by the arching upper branch and the spiky flower sticking up from the bottom of the frame.
