Love the front and back idea Ronnie, both winners in different ways, the light captured in no1 is beautiful whereas the detail and focus in no2 is superb, such an appealing colour too, fine images both.

For once I really like the back view as the lighting is stunning, so V1 for me. Carole
I do like the back view especially with the back lighting as well. Both are very good but the backlight makes all the differnece and wins the day for me Ronnie. It shines like a great torch out of the darkness.

A pair of superb images, Ronnie - both well up to your usual high standard. V1 has to be my favourite today - love the more unusual POV, the light shining through the petals and the fuzzy textures of the stalk and calyx. Stunning.

Two excellent shots Ronnie, think I prefer the traditional view of V2 but V1 has merit.

A beautiful presentation and I prefer V1

15 Jul 2011 12:42PM
The rear view for me is an utterly perfect shot. A change for the usual front view of an open flower. This rear shot has more shape and definition to it. Beautiful lighting. Bravo
15 Jul 2011 1:06PM
Beautiful set of images here Ronnie, lovely colours and use of light especially v1

V1 for me, Ronnie. It is different enough to warrant the vote. And such a pristine example you have chosen. Not the slightest hint of a blemish, spot or fleck to be seen.
15 Jul 2011 1:51PM
Two fantastic images again, v1 wins for me !

It's the backside for me Ronnie, love these against black. Either the red ones or yellow ones look superb, more so when lit as beautifully as this!

Wonderful light and colour Ronnie.

I too like your back view with that astounding light. Thanks for you very nice comments. I painted the version 2 on the Lighthouse again but its a lot harder to get right when you paint it. Thats a challenge for me.
