To me, this species of lavender is not very appealing, but what you have done with it in this image may have changed my mind Smile. A wonderful presentation, and I love the background. Carol

A rather beautiful close-up photograph depicting this extremely handsome species of Lavender leaning against what I presume to be a misted mirror, strong colours and markings combined with lovely crisp detail throughout.

Beautifully done as ever, Barry: I am wondering if Nathan's idea of your method is correct.

Expertly done Barry, but I think the balance would be better if the background flower was higher to give more of a diagonal composition.

Many thanks Dave, and you are correct...however what you see is what there was in a garden.The flowers are as they were growing, and not a lot of room to manoeuvre around them. It is only the background that has been enhanced slightly. Wink

A beautiful image - and I know what you mean about manoeuvring around lavender. I find it impossible to capture at all!
Love the concept. The main subject is I believe strong enough to carry the composition. I like the background but IMHO the second bud and the stem are a little distracting.
