    The light and the dark

    Two different takes on the same tulip.

    I like the second one best but then I am a bit on the wicked side.

    I think if you combined the two and got a shot in the middle it would look awesome

    Looking great! I also like the second one best, I think the dark one brings the texture up nicely. Really delicate and beautiful.

    I do like the first one but the second does take it. Very nicely done.

    Sharon,

    You have the set up for this type of image pretty well nailed. The results are really a pleasure.

    My only question in this case is how you came to choose the pure white vignette in for the first image??

    In any case, nice work!

    I like it Sharon. A touch of wicket, with a soft side.

    Re: The light and the dark

    I like them both but prefer the first only due to the lack of any tone difference in the leaf. It unbalances the shot for me and would almost look better without it.

    Thank you Richard and Bobo...am so glad you liked my flickr acct Bobo...very kind of you to say

    Andrew, I totally accept what you mean about the darkness of the leaf and did indeed try an image without it but after a lot of thought I felt that the silhouette nature of it might just work given the sort of wicked 'glamour' nature of the shot.

    Re: The light and the dark

    #1 gets my vote, but is it possible to feather the vignette. On my screen and to my mind the white vignette contrasts too much with the yellowish background.
    Very nice shot(s) though, such subtle light.

    Re: The light and the dark

    I take your point Wendy, it does seem a little 'abrupt' .I will have a little play with it.

    Thanks for your comments, really appreciate it.
