Was looking at the others I did and looked at the colour one of the b&w I uploaded a couple of days back and thought, mmmm quite like these in colour so here's another. I could fill a page with these but I wont Wink Oh yes and reds seem to be notoriously hard to do on the Pentax, almost as bad as whites for exposure.

looks good Ken but maybe a bit dark for me - but that's just a matter of taste I presume.
Added a slightly brighter version in the mods for comparison.

Damn you K - how do you do it?

Going to have to get some K lessons when I get a studio set up methinks!!

Found one minor gripe Wink (sorry, had to!) There is a spot of the stem showing on the left that is ever so slightly distracting.

Congratulations on the HC - very well deserved Smile

Thanks everyone, looks darker on this screen than I had it at home too :-(. Thanks for the mod Boyd, it does need to be a tad lighter than what I can see now, god I get frustrated when I see the difference! Yes I should have cloned that spot out I guess Ewan. Lit with a large softbox with wafer diffuser. These are seriously nice lights. Thanks again for the comments and to Pete for an HC. K.
