Flower macro and a swirl effect, a sphere effect from the original shot, cut and pasted in and then a flood effect at the bottom. 

Lighting effects from outside an image: Increase the canvas size, add the lighting effects from outside the image so no lights show, then crop to suit just the image itself. That way you get just the glow where you want them. Yeah as clear as mud I know, but there ya go.

This is a beauty Danny. Has a beautiful flow and a great deal to like as the eyes roam over the image.

+1. Couldn't have said it better. 
I've tried many times to upload an image of what first came to mind when I saw this, but the system won't allow it. Here is a link, though the image is not nearly as elegant as your creation:

You have absolutely excelled - even by your standards, with this stunningly beautiful creation Danny! A real delight for the eyes, senses and soul.

Incredible!! Thanks for the explanation. (Not sure I get it, but love the effect!). This is just fantastic in all respects. You are a fantasy master. :)
