When does a circle have Three (or Any) Points?

I bought some mini mums in the grocery, the other day, mostly because I was seeing picture possibilities in them. Among the most prominent, to my perceptions at the time, was the triangle shape. Here’s one┬ápreliminary┬áplay on that theme element.

It was fun finding the triangles in a bouquet of circular blossoms. For added value, I also made a series of 6 shots from the same point of view, but focused throughout the depth of the flower, combined by focus stacking in Photoshop CS5. Lighting was electronic flash filtered through a white translucent umbrella. Some Lightroom enhancements of the final stack returned the warmth of the blossom centers to what I could see, and enhanced the sense of depth by last stage tonal tweaking.
