Tried to photograph this trailing fuchsia outdoors but gave up, snipped off a sprig, brought it indoors and managed to get this half decent shot by my usual method (well, I think it's half decent although I won't be offended if you see it differently).

Details: see EXIF

My thanks to all who CandC'd on "Fading Elegance".......glad it proved to be satisfactory to so many.

Ronnie.

This isn't the first time I've thought one of your shots should have an award Ronnie, just the first time I've had one available! Superb shot, and a lovely variety I haven't come acroos before.

A superb presentation Ronnie, i love the black background, Next time you do something like this try three flower heads as i feel that three always makes for a better composition . but this is still a superb shot

There are a group of flowers I love and never feel able to pay full justice to with the camera lens! This would be one of those! Reckon you settled for the right way to capture these beauties and it's a gorgeous image.
