The weather outside has been so depressing over the weekend, hasn't stopped raining for 48 hours, and the wind is icy. The camera was itching for an airing, so I had a play around with the first wild anemone I picked from the meadow last week.

Two beautifully crafted images, Carol: with V 1 the bloom, beautifully lit and with the water droplets sparkling away, stands out so well against that black b/g, whilst the different presentation in V 2 is every bit as appealing but in a different way.....the inclusion of the stem and leaf is so artistic........can't decide, so 1/2 vote for each.
Ronnie.

Wow, I'm with Ronnie on this, 2 superb images and I love them both equally. The lighting is excellent and the little drops of water really add to the feel, great work, more please.

Composition and colours are superb Carol, but I would have liked more light on the centre, it is very dark with part of it lost in the background.
