Although the title Full Frontal will allow Mick to hurl more abuse east to west along the M8 corridorWinkWinkWink, it was chosen for two reasons:-
(1) the angle of capture, and
(2) use of available full frontal daylight indoors with no reflector this time.....no side or back lighting.

Glad so many were happy enough to see Brodie in Paws for Thought again......thanks so much for your kind remarks.

Ronnie.

(PS.. .. .. for those outwith Scotland the M8 links Edinburgh with Glasgow and then on to Greenock.........R)

Wonderful use of the available light to it's fullest potential in bringing out all the details and tones of pink. Soft and delicate details and to this beautiful image.

One very beautiful Carnation, is there a wedding? Has to be one of the prettiest flowers in any garden. Nicely done Ronnie, I like the preemptive strike on Mick.

fantastic detail in this carnation, every tiny shade is precisely recorded, as to the lighting I can only admire how very well it works!
I bet it takes you a while to carefully turn the flower till everything is just perfect.
