Both good Graham but V2 has the extra punch for me. I do love the softness of both images.

Trev.

Two excellent shots, Graham. Like Trev I love the softness of them and the retention of detail.

Normally I'd try to isolate one bloom but never easy in these hothouses or exhibitions,
but I do love V2 with focus on one and others in supporting role.
