My Streptocarpella hadn't flowered this year so far until yesterday.
Taken against the window and yet more April showers - I've added an additional rain layer taken at the same time to increase the lightness of the flowers
Thanks for looking
A beautiful image, superbly capture, manipulated and presented.
A beautiful presentation of this wonderful flower, Helen. Carol

such an attractuve image ..
well worked by you as ever
Thanks Jenni, John and Barbara
Well worked with this Helen, makes a fine artwork
I do like the way you put together your montages, love this one - Carole
I have tried over and over again to capture a satisfactory shot of a variety of Streptocarpus blooms but have never been really satisfied with the result........they always seem out of focus, but I think it's due to the particular nature of the petal tetures and patterns.
This seems an excellent way of showing off your shots however, as a montage and in such a beautiful montage at that.......very well done, Helen.
a nice selection
Thanks Ronnie and Graham
I have uploaded several over a period of time Ronnie, and I've taken literally hundreds of shots to produce anything that I'm reasonably happy with - they seem to have few defining aspects- the markings are not crisp, they have edges but never sharp and no obvious focus in the centre - I think these are about the best I have captured because I have kept them small - but anyone of them at the size I took them seemed an impossibility to upload as a single image. They are very small though, and maybe it is best not to show them enlarged. I think with macro photography we have developed the idea that big is best, but it doesn't always suit everything we are trying to capture. What I was concerned about here was people saying that the raindrops were far too large
The raindrops work fine for me Helen. Your artistic presentations really are superb.
Delicate and beautiful.The added raindrops are lovely.Very artistic.
A lovely flower.
A nice attractive and well composed image.
They are notoriously difficult to photograph, but this has certainly shown them to great advantage. Lovely work as always.
I bet there was a fair amount of work put into this one Helen !!
A good presentation.
Thanks Joline and Mick
Excellent work Helen. Very clever of you again...............Sandy
Yet another unique and super creation by your good self, Helen. I was moaning in the rain yesterday , but today we have sunshine!
Very clever, very competent.....& superbly artistic & beautiful !!!!!!.
April showers, I reckon in my neck of the woods it is the 40 days and nights repeating itself.
Another beautiful piece of work here Helen.
Do hope you are feeling a bit better now.
Right off to finish building my ark!!!!!
great manipulation Helen
A glorious April shower manipulation, soft and delicate........yet wet.
Brilliant combination works well.
I love the grey and delicate purple combination - together with your stunning presentation Helen! Great work!
Very creative collage.
Thanks everyone - I look forward to seeing Moira's ark
Well constructed montage Helen - first look I thought you had hail stones falling. I think a tweak in 'curves ' could give the flowers a little more contrast.!!!
Thanks Brian - I always wait with baited breath for what you are going to say about my work
Nice presentation of a lovely flower Helen.. Peter
A lovely delicate touch to this montage, with the April shower element.. Very creative ....
So fitting ! An excellent April showcase.

I couldn't give you my UA the other day, 'cos of the 7 day limit !!!!
