Hi all,

I took a short break from the mass Olympic viewing to
take a shot of a pretty posy of sweet-pea flowers kindly given to me
by the Inlaws on Sunday.
I'm chuffed to have this decent capture of them as I tried all last
summer too.
Taken in window light, with a black card b/g, perfected in Gimp.
Catch you all again soon.

Barbara. Smile

A lovely shot of the sweetpeas, Barbara, captured by a method I use a lot too.
Very well done.

Wonderful....I love sweet peas and have such difficulty growing them. You have done a beautiful job photographing them.

A great title for such a beautiful floral display, the colours are so delicate, however at the same very dominant against the black backdrop, simply beautiful.

Superb! One of my favourite flowers and scents Grin

Was hoping to have some of my own to photograph but they've decided not to flower!
