This image is of a little Alpine Anemone about 1.5cm across and it is reflected in that black dish which features from time to time in my pf! If you look carefully you'll see that there is a reflection of the reflection too. This is the first time I have posted an image using my new computer, having edited the image earlier today though it was captured using my original camera some time ago. I decided not to add a frame as I think it looks best set against uninterrupted black. Hope you agree.

Many thanks to all who looked in on my previous image. It was fun even though neither any of you nor I myself has a clue how I arrived at that result!

A super shot of this beautiful wee anemone and it's reflection, Ann: I too have occasionally presented a floral image without any border allowing the black b/g of the image to fuse seamlessly with black b/g of EPZ.......has worked a treat here allowing flower to drop down out of the gloom into the spotlight. Very nicely done.

Glad to know the new computer is serving you well, Ann Smile And leaving this frameless on all black is the perfect way to go, in my opinion.

I can actually see the reflection of the reflection in the top petal! Such a pretty flower and so deliciously taken.
