First I would like to thank everyone for there comments and Mods on the Waterfall all tips have been taken on board and hope to improve next time,..with better light I hope..
These Images today are of an Amaryllis just one in a bunch of mixed flowers from Aldis straight from camera just cropped and framed,
V.1 Full flower.
V.2 A macro showing the stamens captured I think a day later,
Large is better if you can spare the time...
Alan,

~Stunning picture and colours, would suggest using a different background as the light blue website background doesn't really enhance it..just a thought - Jonathan

Both images are excellent, but v2 is my very favorite of them. The yellow stamens just stand out so beautifully against the rich burgundy-red of the amaryllis. Excellent macro.
