Super shadow and good against that naturally textured base.
And further to your tip about bees not being able to see red, I stocked my garden over the weekend with lots of yellow, white and orange flowers just in case they come. Smile

I like this a lot. Interesting split tone kind of look. Lovely textures and great counterpoint with the rounded ends of the railings and that solid square block of the latch.....and a fine diagonal comp. Could you get some texture in the the topleft triangle? Anyways...well seen and well done.
regards Phil.

Interesting suggestion Phil.
Its strange - its a straight photo and my eye didn't see the need for adding a texture, because I know that its a plant box - but when its a digitally manipulated image I seem to work for hours on getting it right WinkWinkWinkWink
I'm so pleased that you mentioned it because it had not struck me at all SmileSmile
