Thanks for the comments. In case you are wondering how that curly, twisted, pointy "thing" that the model is "holding" has appeared in my photo, I created it using the liquify tool in photoshop from the flower itself. I picked an area on the flower and started shoving its pixels around using the liquify tool.
NightPixel—Beautiful idea. I was seriously struggling with it originally until I found the XL button. I had a difficult time at first ‘seeing’ the image. But once discovered, I really like it. It has such beautiful flow, wonderful tone and the bokeh to the background is gorgeous especially accented with the overlayed texture.
