WOW…amazing reception to the last upload! Thanks you all for the votes and fabulous comments…
…and a very special ‘Thank Yooo’ to Joline, CarolG and ChristineD for their wonderful User Awards. Sure put a huge grin on my face
Now I would normally never upload something unprocessed. I think I’ve done it only once. At a minimum, 10% contrast is what I’d give a shot in the way of processing (cropping doesn’t count). But I kinda like how this looks as is.
Saying that, all crit is welcome…that should go without saying ‘cos I like to know what others’ eyes feel. [Is this a bit dark to anyone?]
This was taken with the new lens yesterday morning. At a nearby hospital (took my mum for a fasting blood test) which has lovely gardens.
This is a thalia…and when I Googled ‘thalia’ I was faced with loads of images of a very pretty lady. Turns out there’s a Mexican singer named Thalia! So I Googled ‘thalia plant’ and managed to find out the exact species. The singer sorta made the flower pale in comparison, though
