    Blooming Succulant:

    Did this one early morning, sun still low. Playing with the Sigma 70-300mm lens.
    Colour and sharpness are the main concerns.
    Any C & C welcome.

    Thanks Bobo, the dynamic range was a bit wide. See the leaves at the top?

    LOL flowers for me? Thank you....

    New one - less moody = much happier. I like this one quite a bit. The detail that is showing though is really nice. Well done.

    Just add 'MacKenzie'

    Re: Blooming Succulant:

    I'll take either version.

    The word I find myself turning to more and more about both my own work and that of others when I feel something is hitting the bullseye, is 'subtle'. I find my taste/style is moving towards more of an appreciation of things that are subtle rather than loud/brash. Both of these images fit, for me, that criteria.

    Don't get excited here Bobo, they are not roses! Thanks for the kind words.

    Donald, you really think that was hitting the bullseye? Inspirational words from you, thank you.
