Anniversary Flowers

By GlynnisFrith
I have been having fun this afternoon taking photos of some flowers Tony gave me for our 35th wedding anniversary, our anniversary is today but I was given these beautiful flowers on Friday.

I have waited for them to open a little before getting the camera out.

I set up my light tent & 2 spots lights placed a mirror on the table then put the flower on & used mounting card stood at the back of the light tent to get light coloured background, this is a first for me I normally use a black BG.

So this will be interesting to see how it goes down.

Now added V2 in portrait as Carol & Mike said, take a look see what you think

Please go large if you have the time

V1 edges it for me - but they are both excellent images. Congrats on the anniversary - we reach the same landmark next month.

Beautiful job Glynnis (and congrats on the anniversary). Come to think of it, it's funny the things EPZ folks get up to on their wedding anniversaries!
