Gerbera Daisies are the most charming of flowers and I especially love the powerful colour of red.

I took a whole load of images, experimenting with indoor photography and creating a soft box effect with a plastic plate of all things to diffuse the flash light. This particular image has been manipulated a fair amount with layers of blurring and textures as well as a flower half in picture cloned out in order, to achieve the desired look I was hoping to catch in the first place, but didn't achieve, hopefully giving it a more tidy appearance, nonetheless.

For Diane (Fefe) and anyone else interested in the Faery photos I mentioned last week, I have added a blog with the photos! You can view it here Smile

Hahaha...yes! They are not upside down as such they were a gift from a friend, and stood tall and proud but the weight of their heavy heads, made them flop, like tulips do. Smile

illusion for my addled old brain !!!.Grin

Lovely colour to the flowers which carries through and mixes with the background brown. A well worked image, Loren.
