A manipulation on an iris taken last summer. I wanted to capture the silkiness of the petals and and the blend of colours in just one petal. I haven't attempted this kind of work for months, it has taken me ages..I hope you like it. Happy New Year to everybody.

Recognised your style instantly - this has a wonderful satiny quality, and also a clean simplicity. Great to see you around again.
Oh, and square. Of course.

Generally I don't like manipulated images, but this one has to be the exception to the rule. All above comments stand as far as I am concerned. Well done, worth a vote.

Good evening Dianah,
Thanks for commenting on my 'Swish', nice to see you back and with a lovely abstract. You have an excellent technique which I have never quite fathomed.

I too have been off the site for quite a while but hope to be posting again sometime soon. My Mum passed away last week after a very long illness so I have been travelling back and forth between Devon and Worcestershire for some time.
