Award Shortlist   

Another Osteospermum

By cattyal  
This was a last minute shot yesterday evening when I realised the light was shining really brightly through a glass panel by the front door. I've put some of my shower curtain across an old frame so stood that in front, put a sheet of white paper on top of a champagne box and plonked the vase on top Smile

Levels were tweaked a bit and the background enlarged as well as the usual borders, resize and USM.

Hello everyone - that's a very pleasant surprise to come back here and see all your comments,clicks and the HC - thank you one and all Smile

The champagne is still very much in the box - I have yet to find an excuse to drink it (and the other bottle knocking about)though think I should open it for fear it goes off. I'm told it doesn't last forever but don't quote me on that!

Funnily enough both champagne boxes are invaluable to my photography - they serve as places to prop my backgrounds against and perch plants on when they need lifting up Smile

This a beautiful shot, Alison, I have certainly missed while I've been off line.

Brilliant work
