Ok...my setup was as follows...

1. One gerbera plant on a desk.
2. One desk light angled behind flower.

J'ai fini! LOL!

Oh yeah thanks...I agree...I need a tripod to enable use of a smaller aperture don't I?

Yeah, would help - also have to admit to struggling for the -ve (hence only 1 +ve, but them's the rules!)

Ah...I have another - I also should have plucked out the little fleck-like petals (but as it's a potted gerbera I was loathed to!)

+ive: Contrast is excellent as is composition.
-ive: Agree with Mark re: stamens.

The thumbnail does not reflect this picture's quality. On seeing the larger version, you have done a good job with this one. Will you try it again with a tripod?

+ve: Lovely rich clour
-ve: Distracting material/petals on the centre petals

Sad to give it a minus as it is very good. gets a click as well

Yep, I reckon your version is better than mine. Not just in the composition, but in the way the light filters through the petals more strongly than in mine. So have a very late click from me! Nice one.

Cheers,
Steve
