Kept this one simple and straightforward, these have self-seeded in my garden and they are the most gorgeous colour. Letting athe rest set seed pods so I can collect them in the hope of growing more for next year.

Hope all who are in the areas that had those horrendous downpours yesterday are coping without too much hassle - planning to spend a few days in south Wales next week so was hoping for an improvement in the weather, some hopes me thinks ..............

Would like to feel that this may help brighten your day; as ever comments and critique are always welcome .......... not even a border on this, so what do you think?

Wonderful detail and textures showing up, enhanced by that plain b/g, Jenni.
I too have posted the odd image without a border ...... my shot today is an example, only I had used a black card for b/g and chose the EPZ black b/g to set it in.......so what about changing the EPZ b/g here to white so that the blooms sits in a sea of white........and if you were to fade out the very bottom of the stem it would enhance the effect even more.
Hope this suggestion does not offend.......I am always aware of the fact that some might think "what the heck does he know" as I am but an enthusiastic amateur at this game at best.
Ronnie.

Ronnie, I find your suggestions very worthwhile and am grateful to you for taking the time to, not only look, but also analyse my work in order to make suggestions for improvement ............... I can certainly see the point of your suggestions on this one and agree they would enhance the shot. I'm not an e2 member so don't think I can change the EPZ b/g, but I do agree about that, and I love the idea of fading out the bottom of the stem - will certainly try that. I too am an enthusiastic amateur at all this, but I think that makes us slightly more 'open-minded' in some respects ............. so thank you for your comments they are very much appreciated.

Also thanks to everyone for comments and votes, they are all appreciated and the learning curve goes on.

Jenni
