Hello dear friends,

I don’t have much time for TL, these days!
A lot of details to check before the removal of my house and to organise a meeting of 40 persons the last weekend. But the weather is splendid and I try to benefit the maximum from it.

I received beautiful flowers. Before they pass away, I tried to capture their beauty. I placed behind them a black velvet backdrop and used a tripod. The light was a simple electric bulb with a lamp-shade.

Technically, I converted the RAW format to JPG and adjusted slightly the contrast.

Thank you for stopping by and commenting! Have a great day!

hello Annie,
a stylish flower arrangement, fit to grace a fine dining table. But we have it here, even better!I especially like the deep colour and shape of the rose which has a lovely foil of the white baby's breath.

Hi Annie,
The beauty is greatly captured in this photo. Splendid colors and sharpness. Great contrast due to the black background. Great work.

Beautifully presented picture of your bouquet Annie.
The dark bg enhances the shapes and colours of the flowers.Everything is sharp.
Hope that the move goes well.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Well thank you, Annie... flowers for me, I'm honoured!
Nice flowers too. I like the backdrop, and the small DoF you used so the flowers in the back are a bit blurred... so all attention goes to the ones in the front.
Nice one!
