    The thing that amazes me, Mieke, is how you’ve managed to capture the delicacy and fragility of those flowers using the subtleties of those subdued shades of grey. Great stuff.

  • :) Thanks, Gary. You amaze me with the fact that you never let a photo of mine pass by uncommented-on. Thank you :) :) :) :) :)

  • Thank you very much, Jodie – they were such beautiful flowers… I think it would’ve been difficult to make them look bad!!

    exquisite Mieke ~ so absolutely well done ~ Peonies are one of my all time favs and you’ve done them justice in b/w ~ the clarity and softness, classic in a sense ~ instant fav xxx

  • Thank you, Linda!!! I had never seen them before, but they’re on my ‘all time favourite’ list now too!!

    Mieke, Another inspiring image. Did you create the background and lighting or was that already set up?

  • Thanks, Bob!! No, I’m not good enough at photoshop to create something like that!! We stayed in an apartment in Southern France that just had the most beautiful natural lighting. I draped the curtains across the wall (and anchored them with books on a conveniently-located bookshelf!!) and made use of a pale tablecloth :)

    That’s because I’m always learning something from observing your stuff, Mieke. For example, I’ve just learned how to use “uncommented-on” in a sentence. :)

  • A very very very important skill to acquire, Gary. And you’re learning it from the best ;)

    I thought you’d be lucky to find Peonies in Derby!

  • And they weren’t for me… ;)
