~ Sun Dancer ~

By KKmoments
Another find in the garden a single Japanese Anemone ...... I wanted to do something to make this stand out 'naturally' so picked it, held it up towards the lovely sun yesterday so the light would hit the centre of the flower.... the b/g was the shady part of the garden fence that I darkened in PS..... sorry its another frameless image but I'm swaying more towards the less is more after 'comments' on a fun photography competition where people do not like borders on images!!!!!

Thank you for the wonderful response on yesterdays upload and thank you for viewing todays......

Looks to me as if you did everything right because you've produced a very beautiful image, and the light and clarity on the centre is quite striking. I like borders !
