This is a Hippeastrum (otherwise known as an Amaryllis) that was brought inside for the winter.

Aperture: F4
ISO: 800
Notes: I noticed the flower's reflection in the kitchen window, but in order to capture it I had to eliminate the glare from inside the house and enhance the flourescent kitchen light. So I bounced some light onto the flower with a white card to the left of the frame. Then I used some black cloth in front of the window to eliminate inside reflections and positioned the camera just outside to edge of the cloth.
