Award Shortlist   

Past their best.....

By Niknut
Remember a couple of uploads back ??.....with 'Rose Cluster'.........these are the same Roses, but well past their best, with the petals
falling off as they were touched......but I thought they made a nice set-up like that ?
Just daylight through an open doorway, & a bit of fill-in from a white card on the RH side................

Many thanks to everyone for the great response to 'The Mad Monk'.......glad you enjoyed my moment of madness for 'Silly Sunday'....I've got
another one for next Sunday !!! this space !!.Grin

Very well done Keith - as one who does a lot of still life!
You've arranged the roses so elegantly and the fallen ones look amazing.
Your texture? in b/g is subtle as is the table/tablecloth? on which the flowers are placed.
I never sem to achieve what I'm after in daylight unless I'm outside.
Top notch.

Very expertly arranged still life, Keith. However, if that's the lounge wall in the bg you need to decorate a bitWink
