Simple and uncluttered. Lovely. Well worth the gardening effort.

Lovely shot Stewart, I like the light effect coming from the flower head.

Not sure if it's my monitor or not, but I am seeing some banding effects in the image, circulating outwards from a spot about a quarter of the way up the image just to the left of the stemHope you dont mind me mentioning this.

Thanks all, much appreciated.
Hi Phil, yes i can see them too, they don't appear on the original so can only put it down to the compression for uploading, as could only upload 100k, will have to see what i can do about that, thanks for pointing it out.

This is pretty & I like the colours on the bg but the banding is very obvious to me too.
I thought e2 members could load at 400K ?
