Also known as the Cape Primrose, this specimen was shot indoors yesterday again using available daylight at the window, reflected light from white card and with black card for b/g. I thought of cloning out the pot but decided against it.
I'm not certain what you will make of it! Sometimes I look at it and like it, then at others I'm not so sure. So any comments either way will be completely acceptable.
(PS. This plant can be easily propagated by taking a single leaf, popping it in water for two or three weeks by which time it will have developed roots, then potting up. This specimen was propagated in this way only last September)
Details: ISO 200, 1/6 sec. at f/ 25.0 with Exp. Bias of -1.67. Colour balance was set at 7690K to get most accurate colours, but even at that increasing the blue very slightly on the flowers selectively was required.
Many thanks to all who took interest in "Superstar", and a special thanks to both "andylea" and "digital_boi" for their UAs.
