Beautiful lighting Ron
Ron Sanderson: Thanks Tony.
A wonderful composition with this black background Ron! Well done.
Ron Sanderson: Many thanks Richard.
Lovely shot of a beautiful flower. I love how you kept the background black...how did you do that? Sorry for the stupid question.
Ron Sanderson: Its all done with layers in Elements 7..make a duplicate layer and turn it all black...then carry on as you would with selective colouring. Hope this helps.Thanks for the comment Bernard
Mine and everyone I know has had theirs bloom early this year. Mine as at it's peak 2 weeks ago so the blooms have mostly fallen off now.
Ron Sanderson: We are not the only ones then..Thank you Mary.
Beautiful Ron, the sun has caught this just right, I can see why it needed to be taken.
Ron Sanderson: Thank you Linda.
This is a super shot Ron. Our Xmas cactus is out too, and usually is about this time of year.
Ron Sanderson: Thank you Janet.
