Sweet Pastels

By BarbaraR
Hi all,

I took a short break from the mass Olympic viewing to
take a shot of a pretty posy of sweet-pea flowers kindly given to me
by the Inlaws on Sunday.
I'm chuffed to have this decent capture of them as I tried all last
summer too.
Taken in window light, with a black card b/g, perfected in Gimp.
Catch you all again soon.

Barbara. Smile

A great title for such a beautiful floral display, the colours are so delicate, however at the same very dominant against the black backdrop, simply beautiful.
