Saw these outside a florist shop in Edinburgh.
I loved the way they were packaged.
Added a texture to isolate the pink bunch which caught my eye.
In version 2, I've added a Polaroid effect in Picasa.
Surprised so many of liked the Blue Irises and thank your for your votes
and a special thanks to Billy (williamsloan) for his precious User Award.
Have a good weekend.

Nifty presentation in v2, Kate, but I like the texture layer of v1 best, especially as you have cleared the writing from the flowers.

Two images of contrasting styles each worked very well, however for me Version 1 is the better of the two. A great piece Kate.

A lovely well thought out and processed image, Kate. I love the brown paper and matching frame contrasting to the pink and green of the flowers. Grin

Beautiful bunches of flowers Kate, and whilst I like the added texture, but I like v2 for its presentation and being able to see all the colour range ... Carol Grin

kate, the polaroid version is OK but I far prefer the v1. The use of the texture gives it a still life feel and makes the background bunches into an almost formal backdrop. I think this is a really classy and very creative image. I love it. >>>>>>>peter
