A lovely variety Brian,good detail & colour.
Just wondering if that texture is a tad on the strong side...saying that I quite like the way the shapes draw the view onto the subject.

You could be right Janet I suppose it's personal preference - re drawing the eye - thats why I chose this texture - glad you liked that.Smile

You have really made the aquilegia look as if it is zooming up into the sky, Brian, very effective, and a beautiful specimen too.

Textures aside, the original shot of the flower itself is stellar, Brian.
