A hellebore (if this is what it is) can be such a tricky thing to shoot with its downward facing blooms but i got a peek into this beauty and felt moved to add a tweak or two in PS Els 6 – trying for a first vintage look with a layer of my own..

Critique, suggestions and comments most welcome..

Cheers and thanks so much for looking
