    Wonderful shot !

  • Thank you Renee. It was late in the season and the male was looking a bit tatty, but they still make a nice couple don’t they?

    Another fantastic shot. Are you using a flash?

  • Thank you for your comment. The answer to your question is ‘no’, the picture was taken using natural light. It was shot in ‘Raw’ and processed using Adobe PSE10.
