    takes on a Crocus

    Got hold of a few crocus bulbs today and thought I would do a wee set involving different moods and tones.

    Very, very nice! I love that first shot - it's brilliant - IMHO The second shot looks great too - I think I prefer the first though (mono treatment aside) because composition wise, the area of focus is on the right rather than the left - very minor thing and not necessarily relevant. Great treatment on the third shot to.

    I'd blow those up and throw them up on a wall!

    Beautiful shots Sharon. The first and second are my favourites. The lighting in the second which highlights the tops of the petals is amazing.

    One and three for me. The first is really well constructed.

    Just a quick footnote to this thread....hope you don't mind.

    After your kind comments I had the first shot enlarged and put onto canvas, I am really thrilled with the results and it will make a nice gift for a dear friend who starts Chemo today.

    So thanks again.

    That's fantastic - that first shot deserves to be on a canvas

    Beautiful work Sharon! I am in love with the first one. A most powerful yet delicate image. The softness and lighting are exquisite!
