I think I fiinally got the images to how I envisioned them. Hope you like these. Pretty much straight out of the camera. [Kindly view LARGE, if you have time]. Note: Used fresh flowers picked from the local Anglican Church.

Have a lovely day!!! Mac Smile

They are all fantastic images.

Some subtle changes compared to yesterday Mac, but great attention to detail with the angles and reflections and each one an improvement to me.
This set is quite special. I'm feeling inspired to do some still lifes again.

Wonderful delicacy, beautifully captured.
Hi Mac,

you did this one real good. the soft warm light and the reflections are a nice touch. i used a black glass on mine before. so you see now hoe fun it is to do tabletop shot. haha.
the previous one has the same quality but i prefer this one composition wise. and yes you dont need flashes for shots like these.
lampshades are more than enough.
