The processing is superb, it creates delicacy, mystery. I've always found these difficult to photograph, the flowers are arranged so regularly - never thought of homing in on a single one.

Helen, this is just so very beautiful. The initial close up is superbly detailed - just goes to show what one can actually capture with a bridge camera. The finished article has been extremely well worked, and the entire image is a real winner and I am really pleased to give you my UA - well done, it's excellent!

This is really lovely, Helen, super processing and such lovely soft colouring.
Terry found a pot with one of these in, that had blown over and the flowers had consequently grown sideways, reaching for the light. It's been righted and we're hoping it might straighten now. It will be photographed in due course, but not today as it's very dull Sad
