I love the red background! And even Rod, the girly-man, likes it too. :-) CJ

I like the red background. This is a red challenge?
Rod 12-Mar-2006 12:28
The main problem I have is everytime I make up me mind I change it again..................I know I know, it's a girly thing:-)

Thanks CJ, Mary Anne, Jano, Rod, Armin and Oved.
Jano - yours is the best compliment I have ever recd..."one I would like on my wall"...made my day...heck made my year.
Rod - make up your mind.
Armin - agree with you on bg being active...thats exactly I was going for..but in a subdued way.
Oved - going to take up your suggestion...and try re-shoot this without the red bg.
Thanks all for the encouragement.

Nice lighting, delicate flowers and great DOF make this work. Though I wonder what it would look like with the natural background instead of a red one. /Oved

Hm, the bg is quite 'active', so my attention is drawn to it... on the other hand, it's a repetition of the foreground...hm... I like it :o)
Cheers, Armin

Maybe the mood I'm in as a few hours later & I like it now.

On first viewing it seems really good but the flowers are somehow competing with the background too much for me. I think it's just too much red.

Very delicate and awesome contrast of reds on red - subtle yet a dynamic photo - one I would like on my wall! Very nice RK! jano
