Colours are beautiful - gorgeous detail also. I'm finding the lower half just a tad dark - would have liked to see a bit more of a graduated change in tonal value.

What a stunning colour, Pamela, and you have presented it to perfection. I totally agree with you, Exbury is the No. 1 place to visit for rhodos and azaleas. Carol

This is brilliant Pamela, pin sharp clarity and beautiful light and colour.

As for the bottom being a tad dark I think this helps to train the eye on the flower, just my opinion of course.

Gorgeous image Pam', and very nicely presented.

Thanks, Anne. I've been playing with those graduation sliders for some time and getting it just right is sometimes a nightmare.

It is impossible to not stare at this...and stare at this...and stare at this...which is what I've been doing. It is madness how amazing this is. You HAVE to enter this month's EPZ competition with this or the New Zealand Flax. Good grief...

What a beautiful bloom Pamela, the colours and presentation are first class. I must take issue with you when you say that the display of azaleas and rhododendrons in Exbury Gardens is second to none, those in Lydney Park in the Forest of Dean take some beating!Tongue
