This one is dedicated to Dougie ("Scottishlandscapes") for his advice to me in the best use of aperture for this kind of shot.

The consensus of opinion on my last posting was that the black b/g was favoured, so here is another floral effort with a black background. The rose, "Wildeve", was rescued from yesterday's rain and photographed indoors using available daylight only and with black card for the b/g.

Details: ISO 200, 1/10 sec. at f/13.0 with Exp. Bias of -1.00 and CWA metering.

Many thanks to all who voted for and commented on "Osteospermum".....I am most grateful for your attention.

Ronnie.
