Glowing flower in the dark

I've shot this flower in the wonderful Heller Garden, Gardone, Italy.
The glowing effect is attained thank to an external flash ttl-cable connected to my camera, pointed directly to the flower. I've shot at F22 to have enough DOF.
It was daylight, but the flower was in shadow, and using 1/200s, F22 ad ISO 100, the flash has become the main light source for this shot.

Birth of a new galaxy

It's only a fireworks, but remind me the kind of image used to represent the birth of a new galaxy :-)

I've taken this shot during a 10 minutes firework show near Salsomaggiore Terme, Italy.
I've used fixed manual focus and continuous shotting at  F 6.3, 2 seconds exposure, 200 iso.
(in about 10 minutes I've recorded 228 shots :-)
