Hello everyone.

Hope you're all ok?

Well.... I thought I'd have a go at framing and adding text to some of my images.

The buttercup isn't a prize specimen, but I aimed to match it's colour with the frame.

Thank you all very much for your continued support, votes and comments. Especially with my previous download (Border Collie).

Best wishes

Bev Smile

The flower is lovely as is the colour of the frame but for me I would have preferred a thinner frame

Lovely colours, but yes I would have gone a little thinner with the border but then if you want to make a bold statement this is the way to go!

The Buttercup on it's own is a fine close up but that wide yellow frame seems to compete for prime space . Yes if it were mine I'd only use ONE pixel Smile

Thanks everyone.
I tend to agree with you. On viewing it on site, the border does seem to bold.
Thanks for your advice.

Great, slightly tatty buttercup. I have always loved the blemishes in flowers, it gives proper character!

What a cracking shot and I just love the yellow border (Must learn how to do that!) it sets off the image nicely.
