Another shot from my garden, I'm glad I photographed these on Monday as by by today they had all dropped over.
Another gorgeous shot! How do you process these?

@john4jack: These were shot on a Nikon D70 with a 50mm Macro. Lit with daylight mixed with diffuse flash from a Nikon SB800. Exposure was 1/100 sec at F/8. In Photoshop, corrections made to Levels, Colour Balance and sharpened using the Smart sharpen filter. Image reduced to 800X600 and then saved for web as JPG.

These really glow . . and, from what you say above, that was the way there were. I so much prefer that to 'worked' shots which cam look so false. And, yes, always a shame when these little beauties topple.

@Lilly and Ronnie 2¢: Thanks. The additional flash really helped with these shots, as those few I shot without it just looked dull. I don't go anywhere without the SB800 on the camera.
