Hi all. I thought I'd have another go at a close up of a plant. I saw this in a herbaceous border and rather liked it. I hope you do too.

All thoughts and comments gratefully recieved.

I'm not sure if it is frames in general or this particular frame Peter, but I've put up a couple of alternatives...

You have photographed this thistle beautifully. I like your viewpoint and the emphasis on the details of the flower's base, which is where the interest lies.
As to the frame...I frame a lot of my floral shots, especially, and of course they are a matter of taste. I think the heavily colored ones, such as v1 detract somewhat from the flower, but v2 and v3 are more pleasing to my eye at least. I usually choose a light color from within the image to use, and try to keep it from becoming too heavy. It all boils down to personal taste. You'll find yours, and if you like it, that's what counts in the end.

Great image...lovely detail and colours...think V2 or V3 frames are better-softer colours compliment the image better!

Great shot! I like the angle that you have taken it at, slightly tilted rather than straight. Great detail, I have also tried to take a similar photo but I found it hard to get such good detail. Well done! Smile

Nice clean, neat and sharp image.

Sqaure format a little predicatable but very well handled.
