Thank you so much Beverly, I love this shot too. I put it into a contest but the judge said I should have taken a shot without the dead flower in it. Obviously didn't look at the title LOL

Well, what about that eh! Silly judge...you should have said "put on your reading glasses and tell me that again" :rofl: So now we aren't supposed to have dead flowers to tell a story, its all too PC isn't it May!! lol

:lmao: Maybe I should. We mustn't own up to whose photo is whose though. Once the merits and places are announced then they say the names of those photo authors, but those that are not placed are never revealed as to who took them. A shame really as I often want to tell authors that I liked their work. But it's a great club so I accept it for what it is.

Yup. Dead flowers are not allowed. How dare I grace their screen with bare truth :iconteheplz: I truly think though that they just couldn't be bothered looking at the titles, yet they can be so important at times.

Yes titles can tell a story of the work for sure! It is a shame like you say, that those that are not place are never revealed as to who took them!

Well, I've just looked at your gallery and it's taken me about 15 minutes to pick my jaw up from the ground. You don't know how I dream of being able to paint like that. Your work is stunning - and that word is almost an insult compared to the truth!
Your very kind words and :iconstarhugplz: mean even more now! :iconttaasst:

Your very welcome May, I think it is a gorgeous photo. It is so beautifully photographed. So Delicate and fragile looking. Do you mind if I use some of your floral photos to practice my pastel drawing of flowers?

I used to work in admin and would say to the phone "I'm afraid [name] is not here at the moment, can I take a message?" and another girl picked me up on it and said "You're not 'afraid', you're sorry". Your quote marks brought that back, so I'm sorry if I seem to have sprung at you out of left field LOL People who say "What was your name again?" irk me though, because it was May, and actually it still is May :iconteheplz:
