The final two fuschias in our garden "dancing" in the late afternoon sun. Thought I'd add a bit of "magic" to this one, although I have uploaded the original as V2 for those who prefer this!

Thanks for all your comments and votes and special thanks to Moira (mrswoolybill) for her suggestion of a closer crop to my last image.

Have a good weekend!

Carol

Two fuchsia ballerinas at dance, Carol: I do like what you achieved at V 1, very artistic with what I am guessing is a dance score. I have been thinking about other ways of doing my floral shots instead of my customary black b/g but I could never achieve anything as effective as this.
Lovely work, really bringing the original shot alive, if that the word I'm looking for.
Ronnie.
