Cut Flowers

By chase
My old battered copper kettle with some wild flowers which were growing in the hedgerows.

Lit by daylight camera left.
Raw file sorted in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop with a straighten, levels and a drop of sharpening.

I like the colour combinations here and the reflections in the copper kettle....I must be in there somewhere Wink
Taken against my dark backdrop.

Constructive critique and mods welcome.

Naturally set up. Not neat and tidy. Kind of how I work on my counter. Beautiful image Janet.

Angela, sometimes I just virtually chuck stuff onto the table ( gently) or base I am using, where they land is where they stay....sometimes Wink

It seems appropriate to have wild flowers in that lovely old copper kettle Janet.

I can remember when I were a lad we had a copper kettle almost identical to this, which got heated up on the gas stove. This was of course before electric kettles were invented! 😁
A very lovely arrangement and presentation here, Janet 😃👍
