Great image and I love your title!

They're unusual flowers - what are they?

edit: I'd be really interested to know what you've done here. I'm assuming it's been quite heavily photoshopped. Would you mind sharing how you did it? I would also love to see the original shot too, to get a comparison.

Mel, its a form of Osteospurnum (I think that's how you spell it? It's basicallly a posh daisy!) It hasn't actually been heavily photoshopped just used curves to lighten the background but I can show you the original if you want. I've got windows alongside one wall of my kitchen and use natural light and 3 pieces of white card. Jane

This is beautiful - so sharp in detail and the delicate colours work well against the white background.

When I take pics against a white card, they always seem to look like they've been taken against a white card. How did you avoid having any shadows etc?

Almost correct, Jane - it's osteospermum, according to the RHS plant finder.

And it's a lovely flower indeed. This kind has lovely spoon-like petal tips, which I like a lot.

And the way you've captured it, is absolutely fabulous. I like the angle, the flower coming in from the left, the negative space on the right. Excellent!

Thanks for looking that up for me Conrad and 'jthor', the trick is not to take photos in bright sunlight as it does cause shadows, use a more muted light and overexpose by +0.3 or 0.7 Jane

Hi Jane,
Just some questions after having Malcolm to comment on one of my osteospermum shots.
Is this a cropped or uncropped version? Where did you focus at? What is the aperture you used?
Thanks

Cole

you must be bored of more feedback, but this is simply superb, the subtle tones of the flower, the sharpness of the centre, and the composition makes this something which is very very special.
