A cracking image, wonderfully crafted and presented, the rich red against the black is stunning Ann.

I hope that you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Furthermore I would like to thank you for all you're caring comments and messages throughout the year.

The natural capture in V 2 is so attractive but for sheer drama of presentation, V 1 is outstanding, Ann: the black b/g shows off the bloom so well.
Hope you both have a lovely Christmas and I send my best wishes for the New Year.
two beautiful shots. christineGrinGrinGrinGrin

I'm hard pushed to choose between the studio shot and the natural one, but I think the studio shot just has it by a stamen (flowers don't have whiskers)!

Merry Christmas!! I hope all was lovely at Becky's Smile

Two cracking shots Ann but V1 gets my vote by a mile. Lovely black background and glorious colour. I love these flowers, I had one in bloom in the garden on Christmas Day but was far too busy with the turkey etc to get the camera out.

All my best wishes to you and George for the New Year.
