Ronnie, have always been a big fan of your flower comps right back to when me and bill33 used to sit at lunch time at work and look through epz, have been trying for months to get him out on the road again, wondering sorry. I would just like to say this is outstanding and one of your very best images. The colour and tone along with the detail and dof are fantastic.........very well done mate so pleased for you with this one.
