A beautiful shot with good detail and textures retained in the white petals, nit all that easy to capture, as I know.
And how well the flower stands out from the darkish b/g.
Excellent floral work, Carole.

Iagree. I am a staunch Royalist but the way the media, via TV.radio and press, is shoving it down everyones throat is enough to make me join the revolution !!!!!!!
Excellent shot by the way.GrinGrinGrinGrin

I have to agree, give the poor girl a break, she has enough to cope with, with the birth! Yes I know she knew she was going to be in the media spotlight, but just sometimes I think it goes over the top. I am delighted she safely delivered a boy by the way.Smile
