    A different take on the flowers used in Get swishy!

    I make those flowers work for their vase space!

    Thank you Kathy am experimenting with more light.

    It's fun to see how you can change the personality of a flower so much. xx

    Have always loved your flower shots and this one is no exception.

    Was wondering if removing the stalks for a close-up would work or not.

    Thanks Bobo...I think the stems add elegance in the first... and this is a square crop close up that i just worked up before reading your post and I don't know. I certainly could lose the stems but I like the wee touch of green as contrast.

    Yes, closer shot look good too.

    And yes, keep a bit of green otherwise it would seem to be floating on nothing.

    Just add 'MacKenzie'

    Re: Delicate

    The quality of the image is as per usual.

    My question about this one is the effectiveness of the strength of that 'tea-stain' (don't laugh - there's an article in this month's 'Black & White Photography' about someone who tones their images with tea), especially the one that extends well up the left-hand side.

    I'm finding it distracting. Am I justified in this view?

    Re: Delicate

    Because of where my monitor is in relation to this ( unusual) sun today...... I couldn't even see it at first Donald.

    A few contortions later though and yes it is there and certainly not intentional. This shot wasn't taken against white card so I am guessing that I just haven't cleaned up the background adequately.

    Thank you for pointing it out.

    Well in that case...it was intentional!

    Thanks Jeff

    I must have this printed up to see if it shows.

    I like what you have done Sharon. Your post processing gives me ideas for future portraits of flower I will take. Well done.

    Re: Delicate

    Very nicely done! I am undecided about the square crop with stems, only because feel it shortens them so much that they look almost added. I love the stems in the first image and think they add to the feel nicely.

    Thank you Joe.

    Paul, I totally agree about the long stem shot, I certainly prefer it.
