I like the diagonal in the leaf going down in v1. The flower has wonderful edging colours. The whole image has some super colours - particularly in the leaf.

This is exquisite Pamela.
A beautiful delicate colour, with the petals tipped with that lovely red.
The detail is wonderful.
Both versions work very well, but I think a slight preference to V1.
That leaf was a great idea.

Two super captures.Like them both but I think V1...just.

7 Apr 2009 10:08PM
Detail, tones and colour are spot on, most of what I would have said has been written above by others so I won't repeat them ....just agree with them!!.

As for a preference, hard to say, if pushed I would probably go with V1 because it looks a little more balanced in the horizontal format.

Pamela, this is absolutely wonderful. Are you known as The dahlia girl by any chance? Smile or the flower girl? Goodness me you come with some of the most beautiful images I have come across.
Wonderful work. And handheld? Aah, I am totally bowled Smile

Hi Pamela

This is one of the example of simple excellent photo every thing is well defined , outer lines are so clear . soul of this picture lies in the black background .shades from the flower on leaf gives feel of depth . you worked on it well
I like the v2 because it has got more balance it ?
