Although I love flower shots with a black velvet background I am experimenting with other backgrounds.

This is against a sheet of kids shaded play paper. It has less impact than black velvet but I thought it made a nice change and I liked the colour harmony. What do you think ?

I think this has more impact than a black background. The backround colour has been well chosen to compliment the flower. The composition and treatment using the border just add to the image as well. As its title says, Simplicity that has produced a classic image.

very nice shot, the background colour fade really compliments the tones in the flower.
Good Work!

Wow, what more can I say. Great shot and I love the colouring...would like to see it without the lines going over the stem, as if the flower is breaking out of the image...just a thought.
Well done
