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 ?
Superb, love the colours and the detail
Love the colours here, nice image.
Lovely image enhanced by the background colours.
I think its a very lovely image. Well composed and i love the gradient background. Lovely presentation. Denise x
All Said,well done
Good background for it, nice shot.
superb image well taken.
Nicely lit flower and the BG works well with it.
Lovely - superb colour use
excellent work, love the presentation
this is lovely and works on all counts
OH YEAH Skye.....This is a Pure Belter...well Done
gprgeous - love the flower, bg and frame well put together. ian
Excellent colour,detail and composition to this.
this is a beautiful image, love the pastel colour and the b/g very well put together........................liz
Gorgeous image.love the colours
Great experiment, it works for me. Sam says I must try something else other than black velvet, people will be getting bored with the same shots all the time! and perhaps this result will prompt me to take action
Great shot, well done
The background really makes the shot, I don't think a black one would have been as good.
lovely colours and nice image - like the frame
Love the background and frame, beautiful flower, beautifully taken.
a deserved RC,well done nice work.
great composition and colour
This is beautiful! Wonderful colors and detail in the flower. And I love the background...and frame!
Absolutely stunning, Love the gradiant used and the simplicity Fitting title. Well done Skye.
Nice shot but I'm not sure the purple works. With the high composition it just looks that bit too dominant.
This is one of the nicest I have seen in some time--I love your graduated background--EXCELLENT WORK!
Simplicity itself and yet the shot is completely stunning!....Excellent work!
There's not much left for me to say, so I'm going to be really niggly... I don't like the way the leaf appears in the shot without being attached to the stem. Otherwise, cracking image.
Simply lovely tones.
The Title Says It All
Love the detail.
Hi Skye,Stunning close work,detail,lighting,pastel colour/tones,delicacy and presentation.Take care.Ann
The image is certainly in harmony Skye,the colours are wonderful.I love the soft pastel shades of pinks in the petals and thats a great angle on the flower.The lighting,shadow and detail are all super too.It is all set off nicely with a great presentation.
Love the matching B/G.. gorgeous Skye.
I thought this would do well when you uploaded it this afternoon - it would seem I was right and well deserved adulation
I like the bg Skye it compliments the lovely flower very well,a nice change from black & difficult to get right,you have done that here well done !
Nice colour & detail in the flower,I like the use of the space.
the graduated pink background really works well and its very nicely presented
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.
lovely colour and presentation, LOU
Experiment away to your hearts content. This works!!!
Lovely simple capture
Works really well..
Lovely shot, well presented.

Such a beautiful floral shot Skye made outstanding by your post work on the framing and the background. Impressive.
Great choice of BG!!
That's a cracker and it works so well. The background is beautiful
really like that :o)
This is one great shot !
If possible I would click 50 times.
Wow! Cracking image
Just like something you would find on a greeting card. Pleasing composition and colours. Definitely eye-catching.
i read somewhere that your background can be as important as your subject and this one probably works better than the black velvet would.
This is beautiful Skye, your presentation, the clarity, light and colour all make up an outstanding image.
Works for me. Nice!
Very artistic. Beautiful shot.
Beautiful, love the graduated background, the tones suit the flower so well. Fantastic.
great background colours and nicely presented too.

Stunning flower in great detail. Well Done!
Stunning shot excellent composition, detail and presentation.

Oh my goodness gracious me....this is just stunningly beautiful. Your presentation of this gorgeous bloom has added a whole extra dimension.
Wow, this is superb, everyone else has already said it all so ditto to all the great comments above.
very nice shot, the background colour fade really compliments the tones in the flower.
fantastic shot- worthy of all the comments cheers dave
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.
Everything has been said, simply beautiful.
