"Foxglove"

By RonnieAG
Shot taken in my local park with fill-in flash as the evening light was fading.

My thanks for all the kind comments on Norman Barrett MBE, and a big thank you to Jenn {taggart}, Lillian and Cor for their User Awards which are treasured, I assure you.

Ronnie.

Hard to decide how to capture a foxglove because of height.
You seem to have gotten up close and personal with this one and
made a very good capture.

A hanging chain of bells, Ronnie. Very good comp, filling the frame nicely with colour and no over-exposed areas from the flash. Well controlled.

Spotted this on the Featured e2 Photo earlier. The flash definitely puts a bit of zing back into the colour and lifts it from the bg. Nicely done, Ronnie.

Well after all this time Ronnie, you've finally converted me over to flower photography, although you'll have to wait till tomorrow to see what I'm posting......Just remember this though when you see it "I never promised you a Rose Garden" GrinGrinGrin

Lovely as always mate.....

Nice flower shot, but would suggest not to use a border thats similar to one of the dominant colours, - it can distract rather than contain, which is the job of a border.

Superb colour looks great on black bg Ronnie. The detail on each flower is brilliant. paul
