You done a great job AndreaSmile Macro flowers are something I enjoy a great deal but the lighting on this is superb. Full marks..11 out of 10Grin
I have to say too that your "portrait" on your portfolio page shows great individuality and I admire that, more than any of your others in fact. It's that "different" approach, which makes a good pic shine out from the restSmile You have an artistic ability which I admire...wish I had it, just the occasional flash of inspiration with me(g)

Thanks Leo! I think it's the colour and lighting that 'make' this picture, not any special skill of mine, but it is a favourite image.
As for the 'portrait', it was an impulse shot taken on holiday this year when I spotted my reflection in the car mirror. As I'm far more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it, it suits me! Smile

Surprising how many photographers, including myself, hate going before the camera Andrea.
As for your saw the rose and took it...that's the important thingSmile So many flower pics around but few which make you look twiceGrin
