Its taken me quiet a long time even by my standards to produce an image like this, but I have to thank the likes of Suehh and Polly470 for my inspiration and whos work I always admire. This was taken yesterday at Harlow Carr after a pleasant day out with my mate Bazmo and our wives. As usual I have been totally blown away by your comments on my previous uploads, and hope this image is to your liking. A big thanks to Shadow House Creations for the texture used as a background.

A very impressive image, Bob, and the textured background sets it off beautifully. The whites on the rhododendron flowers is well handled, and I like the composition with the downward facing leaves given lots of space at the bottom.

Shadow House Creations produce some wonderful textured layers - the thing to do now is to start to build a file of your own - its amazing what you find when you set out to photograph textures for using in your own work.
Well done with this - it works very well SmileSmile
