    As usual, Sharon, your lighting and composition are masterful. The canvas texture here is an interesting choice, and an effective one, imo. I doubt I would have the courage to texturize this shot, given the detail of the petals, but it certainly works. Did you arrange this lighting with the texture in mind?

    I really like the subtle colors. Was this done with lighting, or added in post-processing?

    Another superbly superb shot.

    Was the muslin like fabric placed before the shot or added in post?

    Hi Bobo and Al.. thank you.

    It is a baby muslin ( not very glam)..I pinned it behind the shot...work with the light and draped with blu tac.
    some pp and the lightest paper texture

    All so technical.

    So the "front" part is pp and not a real piece of muslin?

    One of your best...you take a photograph and produce a work of art. I look, then say...how does she do that? Then I have to open an image and discover what you did. Well done Sharon.

    Thank you louise, Philip and Joe. I wouldn't say I had any particular inspiration .

    Bobo...all the muslin is real ( it has the suares on!) the last thing I did was apply a very light paper texture over the whole thing in PP...am guessing you think either I should have left that out or perhaps used a finer muslin drape?

    Beautiful .....if you leave off the texture, and print on canvas, would be a lovely thing on a wall.

    Thanks Nat.

    Some people have said the colours are too muted but I find the shades quite restful.

    Some re-working required though.
