Good morning Peter. Wonderful iris, but It is a pity on a background there is a girl....But it is an interesting variant of a background! Wink

Colin & Evengya, thanks for your votes,...but that pretty petite blonde in the background is my girlfriend, Debra. I just couldn't "frame or clone her out of the picture." Get it?? Regards...Peter

A beautiful iris, wonderful colour. Would be good to see the iris against a plain background. Carol

A lovely iris I have never even heard of before let alone seen - I agree with Carol about it being on a plain BG

Understand the problem re the girlfriend but have to agree a plain bg would really due full justice to this obviously beautiful Iris. You could take a great portrait of the girlfriend to make up for clonning her out!

Lovely flower - agree about the background though. Even a sheet of card or something held behind would do the trick. Definitely worth another go.

Good shot, great colour and like the pov it makes the flower look very big!
Well done.
