Thankyou for giving your opinions on the cropping of my last image. The opinions were quite evenly divided.

I hope you're not getting bored with these. I'm certainly enjoying putting them together.

As I have said before, they are inspired by searching the internet for butterfly desktop wallpaper, accompanied by the desire to create some fantasy pictures with my butterfly jewellery collection.

This is my fourth attempt.
I'm using my own flower pictures for the backgrounds.
Here is a golden chalice vine, desaturated and softer toned, together with a butterfly brooch.
The Exif Data is for the brooch. Tripod and timer used.

Pamela.

I love this one, Pamela, especially as the vine is one of my favourite Mediterranean flowers Smile Carol

Excellent capture of both the flower and the brooch.

We have one of these plants in the Spanish garden. I never knew its name so I always call it The Blowsy Tart. Its proper name, Golden Chalice Vine, doesn't sound nearly so much fun, so I will stick to my name for it.

Wow...our Solandra is just plain yellow with no purplish streak. Very nice Smile

Another beaut you've put together here, Pamela. Love the combination of colours.
