V1 is a wee change from my recent landscapes and buildings time for a wee change this one taken in the grounds of Culzean Castle on my recent visit with Ronnie.

V2 is to say thanks to those who gave their UA's to my last upload

Have a good weekend all

Now what would happen if you were to be given a UA for v2? GrinGrin (and 'try it' is not a valid answer!! Wink).

v1 is such an unassuming flower but with wonderful markings and detail.

Missed this one during my 'sabbatical', Graham: a fine capture of this geranium in fine detail and colours.
And your processing to achieve V 2 is excellent and way beyond anything I would be capable of.........and it is an image that deserved the recognition it received.
Nice sunny morning again, so we may venture over to the light side today.
