Thank you guys, for all the kind words.
Ronny, the first one of the second set is my favorite.

Beautiful images, GW. I see you have mastered daylight flash, but maybe a little too much - makes your day lillies look more like night lillies! (just kidding)

Thanks, Pen.
Lots of photoshop work to make them presentable.
I'm still doing a lot of practice with my flash. I'm starting to think that there could be an intermittent problem, or I'm not getting a solid contact at times. It gives me different results under the same conditions so, I'm having trouble learning what it takes to get the results I'm looking for.

GW,

They look great. It could be a lot of work in PP to get them as you mentioned presentable, but one thing is, for you to get this results they have to be great shots at first, then you can work it out in PP.

What I mean is that you have to have a good primary picture to be able to re-touch in PP without losing that natural look that your pictures show.

Thank you very much, Armando!
That is true for the most part but, its surprising to me how much of an improvement can be achieved with just a fair shot.

BTW, when you use a solid black font, it doesn't show up for users that choose the black background as there theme. I did the same thing thinking it looked better but, was alerted by another member as to what was happening. So, using the default font color is best overall.
cheers,
