Another beautiful shot!

You sure got your mileage out of these flowers. Please don't tell me they're fake!

Mandy, I agree with tronds... just a tad darker... put please don't take this a being picky or criticism... but only constructive, since your flower composition and colour and all are really spot on... beautiful use of light even within the flower. Excellent work!

I really like this and for me the background is very clean making this look like a 'pure' shot, I think darker would take away that. It just depends on what you are going for but this is lovely and subtle......... good work

Thanks everyone for the kind words and good constructive criticism. I did shoot this with a dark background, but me personally didn't like it. I like the clean crispness of the white on white and that is what I was trying to achieve. I was trying to think outside my box again....by not doing what I normally do.......shooting on a darker background.

Appreciate everyone's comments and never apologize for what your thoughts are..that is how we all learn is from each other's critiques.

Again thanks for your comments. Mike these were real flowers.......for $5.00 I did get my money's worth.

Mandy
