What stunning colour in this Lillian, very nice
7 Mar 2014 5:28PM
I don't usually like to see Pink and Green together Lillian, but on this occasion, the shades and textures really do come over well. Another excellent addition to this wonderful series.
So sorry to hear you have Back problems Lillian, and I know how painful that can be while sat at a Computer for even a few moments. Sorry I can't do anything to help from here, but I hope my award will at least cheer you up for awhile Smile
All the best to you, and I really hope you get well soon .

You have ny sympathy Lillian . Unless it happens to you one has no idea of the pain and the total lack of movement. I injured my back last year and was so confined to bed i doubted i would ever walk again!! I an now SO careful but when it comes to photography it isn't easy carrying a large and heavy camera bag plus tripod! Don't overdo it and i am sure all will be well. Ann.
Love this image the colour and detail lovely shot

Trying not to be too jealous of your Carnival shot, having visited several years ago. Sadly before I was into photography! A wonderful colourful shot..

Not harsh at all, Lillian. The lighting looks flatter giving more detail in the flowers and costume but still with some sparkle on the jewels.
