Er.......Oooops !!

By Niknut
My attempt at a bit of 'flower-arranging' ??..........don't think I'd 'graduate' if it were a college course I reckon !!!!.GrinGrin

Actually, they're the left-overs of my wifes bunch of Carnations, which had started to droop, & wither up......so I grabbed 'em before
they hit the bin...........thought they'd make a nice off-beat flower/still-life arrangement ????

Daylight through a window behind, plus a white card to reflect a bit of light into the shadows...& a bit of texturing to add to the sad state of the blooms !!.Smile

Many thanks for the great response to 'Not so Insy Winsy' !!!......& special thanks to Chloe (cocobean) for the valued UA !!!!

You couldn't have arranged them better if you tried!
A wonderful haphazard still life with a texture which works well with the pewter vase.

The light, the surface and the background are brilliant.

A good composition with nice colours but nobody would put Carnations in a short jug. The flowers work best in a tall vase which supports the stems and heavier heads.
But then the droop they have here wouldn't happen, the photographers dilemma.

You've got one utterly gorgeous still life here, Keith. The light, colour, detail and processing are simply spot-on Smile

This is much more interesting and fetching flower arranging than what you usually see, I tell you.
