After the inspiration of going to GPOTY at Kew I have added a touch of artistic license to my previous Iris shot, and put a Sepia tint onto the image, it looks really good full size and will offer it for sale at the next craft fair

you have to see it large to see the detail and effect, not sure if it works or not, but boundaries must be pushed Smile

Absolutely beautiful! I really enjoyed the colour version, but the toning here fits perfectly and takes this to another level...
