Haven't shot anything for a while as I am recovering from an operation. The brilliant thing was that I received loads of get well flowers, so thought I'd better get into the studio and shoot some before they expire Smile

Lit with snoot to the right and softbox to the left. Background was a white wall, but the gradiated lighting gave a nice grey colour.

Beautiful Mel, love the light through the petals and the gorgeous muted colours.

Get well soon and a speedy recovery!

Oh, I do hate to see a 29, especially when its deserving of an RC.
Very nice exposure and composition, Mel.
