V 2 is a real frame filler, Trev, the entire space taken up with this lovely mauve/purple chrysanth, and I like the pink one against the black b/g in V 1, my favourite b/g for indoor shots.
My only concern is the stem which doesn't seem to quite fit.......is this inadvertent due to processing or something deliberately applied? I feel a more natural look would suit the beautiful flower better.
Sorry if this sounds a bit picky.
Ronnie.

Two wonderful captures and so vibrant with only natural light.
Think I prefer V1 even with the iridecent stem. Beautifully sharp
and perfect against black b/g.

On revisiting your image this morning, Trev, and on re-reading my own remarks, I am rather appalled at my choice of phrase which was ill conceived and totally inappropriate coming as it does from an amateur to a professional.
I hope you may find it possible to accept this open apology.
Ronnie.

Two most beautiful images Trev, each battling for supremacy,. Each full of so many beautiful qualities, however I think image number II takes pole position in readiness for todays Grand Prix.

V2 fills the frame with lovely detail and colour Trev but I like the space given to the bloom in V1.

Thanks everyone for great comments and votes, I should have put up an explanation at the start! The stem in V1 had been sprayed with some sort of metallic paint for it to be worn for a party Saturday evening, the flower was fresh and the purple flower had a purple metallic coat applied to the stem, this flower shop tries to match flower and stem to colour of dress, it was worn by my Grandaughter, the flowers were in excellent condition and different! So could not pass up the opportunity to photograph them.

Regards

Trev.

You know have only been using this site a short time and every photo I open simply stuns me with the quality. V1 and V2 are 2 more fine example.
