Lovely colour & detail, and I like the way the shadows fall across the flowers - really spring-like.

The portrait session was tremendous fun. We could have done with a bit more space, maybe, and the background colours we a touch contrary, but we improvised like mad and got some very satisfying results. Improvisation - that's where we old'uns score every time, don't we Smile

Love the light and the sharp capture of the daffs but I find the blue of the background leaves rather strange. Is this the result of using Auto Tone?
