Two Hearts....

By chase
A variety of Dicentra (f.alba) or Bleeding Hearts that grows in my garden,also known as Dutchman's Breeches or Lyre Flower.
Great shapes which demonstrate why it's called Bleeding Heart.
Taken outdoors with my lightbox as the bg & a diffuser above to cut out some of the harsher light.

F11 manual mode
1/8th sec with tripod
ISO 200
Raw file converted in C1
Levels adjusted,slight crop & border added in Photoshop.

One for a card front I think Smile

Thankyou for taking the time to look.
Janet xx
