My attempt at a bit of 'flower-arranging' ??..........don't think I'd 'graduate' if it were a college course I reckon !!!!.GrinGrin

Actually, they're the left-overs of my wifes bunch of Carnations, which had started to droop, & wither up......so I grabbed 'em before
they hit the bin...........thought they'd make a nice off-beat flower/still-life arrangement ????

Daylight through a window behind, plus a white card to reflect a bit of light into the shadows...& a bit of texturing to add to the sad state of the blooms !!.Smile

Many thanks for the great response to 'Not so Insy Winsy' !!!......& special thanks to Chloe (cocobean) for the valued UA !!!!

A good composition with nice colours but nobody would put Carnations in a short jug. The flowers work best in a tall vase which supports the stems and heavier heads.
But then the droop they have here wouldn't happen, the photographers dilemma.
