After the success of yesterday's vintage Pussy Willow, I'm reluctant to upload
another with a different b/g. I borrowed a friend's light tent and thought a red b/g might be exciting!
It's turned out more pink after processing!
My sincere thanks to you all for votes and kind comments and special thank you to Trev (achieverswales),
Joline and **** (dickpics) for their precious User Awards - I was very surprised and delighted.
Thank you all.

Very bold colour but it works Kate, good strong texture but not overwhelming the pot and flower, I like it.

Regards

Trev.

Very nice, it makes a very stylish, bold statement, and using the Hue/Saturation slider you have the potential for many more images.

Red's not my favourite colour but it certainly makes a good bg in this presentation Kate.

Pink background works very well. Red might have been too overwhelming?
