A beautiful gladiolus, the pale tangerine colour being one I have not often seen: beautifully lit, captured in excellent detail and set against the black b/g you get that almost 3D effect.
A truly beautiful floral image, Richard, and I'd have been so pleased with were it my own.
Ronnie.

Beautiful Richard an I must admit I like seeing the top of the flower in an image, not so easy with a tall flower.
Lovely colours and perfect with dark b/g.
