Lovely set George.
If it's used by the pharmaceutical industry then they've probably patented it and could sue you for photographing it Wink

This is my favourite scent George and I always spray the household linen with it to spread peace and tranquillity around the home. Two very beautiful images perfectly composed with great DOF and colour.

Two most beautiful images depicting the wonderfully beautiful and fragrant Lavender George. Image two working very well in the portrait format. Good use of selective focusing your chosen aperture of f/7.1 ensuring a pin sharp bloom with enough depth of field to blur out the background just enough to still be able to recognise the fellow blooms colour and outline. Just one point for reference George, that I may be inclined to clone out the relatively sharp pieces of foliage down the left hand side as they do tend to distract the eye somewhat.
