Let me be the first to welcome you back! These images are lovely, and what a find in your garden, no wonder you were delighted. V2 is an interesting image and very well presented, however, V1 just "does it" for me!

Good to see you back Pamela, hope you had a good trip. The background in V2 is so unusual but V1 is a stunner. It's amazing what appears in the garden, presumably courtesy of the birds!
18 Aug 2009 3:21PM
like v1, v2's too in my face!!! pretty image well captured and composed...

What a stunning flower, Pamela, a wonderful colour and V.1 is presented so well. Not sure I go too much on V.2, though, too many hard lines behind such a beautiful soft poppy. Carol

V1 for me, she stands out so elegantly. In V2 the cold blue drains her of colour a bit for my eye.

Thanks to you all, it's good to be back.
I feel I may have chosen the wrong colour for V2's background, but thought I would run it by you. Agree with Moira.
SANDRA: I have the birds to thank, then.

V1 is a super image Pamela - that green centre is such a lovely contrast to the Lilac petals and the detail is superb.

Glad you had a good trip Pamela. V1 is beautifully presented and the detail, colour tones and exposure is superb. I hope you don't mind my saying V2 to my eyes is Yuk! The colours just don't work.
Please speak to me again Smile
21 Aug 2009 6:52PM
The light and shadows and all the different shades of pink look great against the black b/g Pamela. It's definitely my favourite of the two.
