    That first image is superb Sharon, and while I don't get an "Oriental" impression, the
    background + flower colors really blend well.

    Sharon I have to admit that affected by your title when the image was loaded at first I saw an oriental dancer to later reveal the flower. I like the feeling.

    Absolute works or art. I marvel at how you can visualise things in this manner and coming up with results which do not destroy the main subject.

    I tried to do a Sharon effect the other day but do not dare post it for fear of being laughed off the board.

    I like them Sharon, if I had to guess I would say Peonies. Your images remind me of Oriental Art I have of birds and butterflies I have, the old parchment look.

    Re: Feeling Oriental.

    Can I be awkward?

    In terms of the artistry, these are, I think, amongst the best works, if not the best, that you have shown on here. But ...........

    Do you think that first one should move a 'smidgeon' to the right so that the leaf isn't hard up against the edge of the frame?

    Re: Feeling Oriental.

    Thank you everyone....much appreciated.

    Agree totally with you Donald, it would improve it greatly but it was bang up against something I couldn't clone out so I just had to crop it that tight or lose it...or as it is sometimes called...

    User failure!

    Thanks Paul....the bane of working in a tiny space I keep asking for a proper studio but then again, I love the light where I am.

    ohhh..and no one is listening anyway!!!

    Re: Feeling Oriental.

    The first one has really caught my eye and this is my third trip to look at it. A great work of art and I agree with all it is the best I have seen of your work. I am just trying to get started posting on other folks posts sorry I haven't done it sooner.

    In that case it must remain a, " OMG, that's gorgeous" rather than be elevated to a, "Jings, Crivvens, Help ma Boab" status (apologies to non-Scots for use of the local dialect!).

    Re: Feeling Oriental.

    Gorgeous just does seem the right word for that first image, Sharon... sensual and delightful... I think Donald has a point (duh!) about the top leaf - though I know it's pedantry, I wonder if it would improve it just to crop in a tad on the left so the leaf tip doesn't end just off the edge of the photo... like 2mm (on my monitor!) or less...
    That's not to detract, though... it's a beautiful picture
    (and... is it a peony? or carnation?)

    You are truly an artist with vision, Sharon. I haven't been here long, but I've already learned to keep an eye out for your posts. This one certainly doesn't disappoint.
