Re: Just a Flower

I use to shoot flowers, but lost interest somewhere along the way, but that doesn't mean I will never make the attempt again. This one Frank, has a paper/artificial look to my eyes.

Re: waiting for Spring

Stunning image Piet !!! Love the lighting you created along with the color tone. The snake? Well, as one that doesn't care of any SNAKE, this one around the neck is beyond my desires. Still, I like what you have done here and with so many of your other creations.
