My first real photo shoot & boy was it difficult....can't kneel down like i used to. hahaha.
Bought these little beauties from the local garden centre on Sunday & only felt brave enough to get out there & shoot them last night....feel better for it though.
No frame, just cropped, a slight contrast & unsharp mask.
Am now starting to make comments again from today.......
It's great to be back with you all once again.
Take care.

WOW, those are bright colours! I bit too much to my taste (they look a bit unnatural on my monitor).
