Here is another view of the hellebore from my garfen taken on a sunny morning last week. I am very pleased with the backlighting.

f16 1/60th , natural morning light, touch of flash and Photofiltre for levels

I am once again very grateful with your comments on my last up-load. So encouraging.

Hoping that this slightly different view will meet with your approval. As usual comments, critiques and advice are are welcomed.

Have a good evening and pleasant week-end,

Jean-NoŽl

I like the way you have managed to keep the detail in the shadows, with it back lit,
