Searching for Light

By Irishkate  
This was my other winning image in the Plants & fungi section of the Muirshiel Park Competition.
You have seen this before with a texture added (I'll upload a copy) but we couldn't use any manipulation
in the competition apart from levels etc., so this is the original.
Well little did I ever expect to upload an image of damaged tyres to Ephotozine,
but I'm glad you enjoyed my little story.
Harrison of course think he's the Winner now and guess what he wants for his birthday this month -
Hot Wheels! (the latest thing I'm lead to believe) so thank you all for your comments on the story!
Hope you're all OK wherever you are.

Lovely capture Kate. I couldn’t help wonder what ‘Camera Sutra’ position you
were in for taking this? Excellent work for a natural take. Loved V2 also….WinkWinkWink

V2 for me Kate as it has a more ''grotty'' look to it !!
Good work with V1 though.

V2 for me too, beautiful images both.
Harrison was the star so he deserves a nice present. Grin

Time after time you produce marvellous images, Kate.
I'm sure the only reason you don't win more prizes is that you haven't entered!
This is a really great shot.
Excellent shots Kate, V1 looks almost translucent , much better than your tyresSmileSmileSmile

I much prefer v2, but I'm happy this won for you.
Hot wheels never go out of style apparently.....they have been "hot" for years. Boys love them.

Of course I remember seen this shot before, it is gorgeous and hard to forget!
I like V2 better because of the backlight effect on the petals.

Both versions are worthy of an upload Kate, but v2 stands out more for me
