Bluebell

By mikewatson
This photo was taken in daylight, backlit in the conservatory.
Still trying macro work with Sigma 100mm macro lens.
Using the white background has isolated the shape of the Bluebell as I intended.
Did not know if to leave the stem in or not but thought it complimented the composition. Thoughts very welcome as always.

Excellent with the stem in. Superb detail and colour. Imho I feel the border is a touch heavy, BUT that is only my opinion.
