alpine flower - RE-POST

By GavMc
This beautiful specimen caught my eye in the Alpine Flower Garden on the Kitzbuler Horn in Austria.

I'm unsure of the name (it wasn't in my flower book), but it looks like a variant on the thistle. I like the delicacy of the petals over the prickley stem.

I'm pleased with the image, although would have liked to have captured more pin sharpness through the whole depth of the flower. Almost there though!

I cropped the image and put a border on with accents from the stamen and petal colours. I re-posted this morning's original with a slimmer accent hairline, think its better..

Comments welcome as always..

You have captured the detail very well, and that's difficult with spikey flowers like this. The border is fine.
