....in my brother's conservatory, last week-end. I did not take the full kit-bag on our family visit; we were blessed with some beautiful light that made me regret leaving the macro lens in Northumberland, so I just did the best I could with what was available. Misswoolybill (who had joined us from London) took a few photos of me lying on my back on the floor trying to get far enough back to take this picture; I was laughing so much I'm surprised that I got any results at all, apart from backache Smile

Well you got the shot which is the main thing Bill. A great one at that, with the back lighting bringing out the colours so well, really god image.

I will go along with everyone else and say this is an absolute cracker Bill.for all the obvious reasons however you get no extra points for degree of difficulty. Super. I love it.

What a very nice composition Bill and very well taken under the circumstances.
I have to admit to finding the light spots in the background a tad distracting though, especially the one top left but that is a minor point.

To often photography is planned like a regimental campaign down to the last detail, but this proves with a bit of time and discomfort and by the sound of it a lot of fun you can still come out with a great shot like this, great looking image well done Bill. - gary

The side/back lighting is superb and the halo effect on the nettle is excellent. The dof is also good leaving the eye to concetrate on theplants.

I love how the backlighting is creating a beautiful glow all around the leaves & flower of the nettle.
Not sure what the orange flower is, but it is very lovely.
A wonderful composition Bill.
