Taken a couple of days ago at Overbecks, a National Trust Property near to Salcombe in Devon.
Not sure of the name of this flower - any suggestions gratefully received, please!!
Osteospermum it is - thanks, Ronnie!
V2 is another version where I'd been 'experimenting' with Lightroom and PS - not sure about it, really, but thought it worth an upload for some views and opinions!
Thanks to all who viewed, voted and commented on my 'Team Work' upload - I really appreciate all support and encouragement.

Just beautiful **** and I like the point of view with the flower leaning into the camera and a very nice DOF.
Regards John.

I think it's an Osteospermum flower, Richard, and a very pretty one it is too with the petal tip tones matching those more centrally.
Difficult to choose between both versions, like 'em both equally, so it's 1/2 vote to each.
The flower seems to stand out in 3D from the dark b/g.

Repeating what's been said , stunning image , detail is good and the colours are fantastically captured and processed ,difficult to decide on which one is best when your at your computer , sometimes I have to leave my shots a day and go back to look at them to help me decide ( and still probably chose the wrong one Tongue) but v2 is the shot for me lighting just seems to amp the vibrancy of the flower , also like the small colour detail in the frame , easy to spoil things by over doing it but you have this image spot on , nice one Richard , regards kel
