"Farewell to 2012"

By RonnieAG
The end of another year, so I send my best wishes to all for 2013, especially for health and peace of mind.
My thanks to all who supported my efforts during the last year, and I thank Annette {annettep38} for her User Award for my last posting Sulphurous Sunset.

Yesterday was another wet dreich day here so it was back to the KS Studio for my last shot of the year, but this time with a slightly different twist to the usual.

This is so pretty! Beautifully crisp details in those whites and a lovely arrangement set upon a very successful bg.

Raised a smile when I read "Farewell to 2013". Have you been at the Scotch already? Tongue Ghastly weather and can't sleep for the noise of the wind. Hope to goodness 2013 has rather better weather in store but somehow I doubt it! All my best wishes, Ronnie and hope to view many a beautiful image in your pf throughout another year.

And an excellent twist it is too, Ronnie. The blue background certainly compliments the delicate shading of the petals and leaves. The overall exposure avoiding any burn out is top notch.
Have a Happy New Year, Ronnie.

At first this looked like the sky was the b/g but I see it is a textured b/g.
Looks natural and how you can get such sharpness and 3D feel with one image astounds me Ronnie.
I'll try harder in 2013!
Beautiful and colours always true.
All the best for 2013 to you and yours.
