I do not know that native to South Africa, Herman. Delicate lacy flowers. Lovely photo. Very neat and orderly!!!

I love the look of the buds...kind of wound up and ready to unroll.

Won't be around much as the MIFI is crazily expensive to use out here but as Garrath is banking on line, I am taking this rare chance.

Just carried out a small modification to your already great image. Nothing drastic Herman, just a few minor surgeries here and there. Firstly I opened the image in CS5 and the made a Copy as not to work on the original. I then began to repair the rather weatherbeaten petal by using a combination of the Cloning Tool and the Blur Tool from the Tool box , gradually manufacturing the new petal and smoothing down the clones edges to create something which looked like the other within the image. Once this little job was finished I softened the hold image slightly with a sweep of the Softening Brush Tool which can also be found in the Tool Box. Once I was satisfied I then flattened the image from Selecting Layer then Flatten from the Pull Down Menu.. Job complete, time taken 10 minutes.
