Nice John! I would like to see no 2 as a black and white (plus a tad sharpening?) as it looks almost abstract in its shapes and might make an interesting textural photo?

Jus thanks for the kind comments
My main server got trashed viruses so had to rebuild it, I lost all my PS actions

This is a quick B&W in CS2 using greyscale and tweak's .... and PP is NOT my strong point I come from a CAD background not graphics.

You know B&W is pretty cool I cut my teeth on it in the 70's, there seems to be more renewed interest in it in the forum some nice work by a few posters Fred, Nicktrop, Harj, some others too and of course you yourself

B&W shows form very well see Freds last thread.

I really like the composition of #1. You must retake the picture when the flowers bloom.
