Lovely detail in this 'life or death' situation, Carol Tongue Creative work, maybe not so sure about the colour of the Epz background though.

Your indoor work is every bit as good as your outdoor Carol, and that's the highest compliment I can think of to give you for these!

Couldn't understand what the bg problem was but see from the comments you've changed it to black. Works brilliantly for floral images, I reckon! Another beautiful set. Love them all but probably V1 just tips it for me.

Nice to see the two side by side in V 1 and there is still innate beauty in the left one despite all petals fallen, Carol.

Superb work Carol.
Love both images but the beauty of V2 does appeal
and makes out look at what we'd normally dismiss.

Beautiful Carol. I think I actually like the dead one best. Probably because the stamens are so pretty.
