Langcliffe roses

The roses were exactly this colour as they dried out and faded- no trickery here! Taken on (my favourite) Fuji Provia slide film and scanned.

Beautiful shot David, with fantastic details on the timber leaves and vase.
David from the Hebrides: Thanks Aussie- the Canon does have wonderful lenses!

Exceptional Natura Morte, Dave. A soft light creates a magic.

David from the Hebrides: Many thanks VZ- the light is natural, from a window nearby.
Most lovely, Dave, most lovely. Fine colors.
David from the Hebrides: Many thanks Larry- I just find film, especially Provia, gives a more seductive reproduction of colours than any I have ever produced digitally.
This is absolutely gorgeous! Love the contrast with the white jug and the rich colour surrounding it. (:o)
David from the Hebrides: Thanks Rosalyn- I won't be selling the film camera just yet then! I may even go back to film more regularly- something I'm discussing with another famous shutterchancer at the moment.
Beautiful still life with natural lighting. I love the colours too and the fact that the roses have died - it has a melancholy air.

David from the Hebrides: Many thanks- I actually find still life very difficult and am usually disappointed with the results, but this worked better than most- mainly I think because of the film quality.
This is fantastic. It is just beautiful.
David from the Hebrides: Praise indeed! Many thanks Bill.
Superb composition. The color and lighting are fantastic.

I like the echo of the flowers in the carving (? if that's what it is) behind, and the design on the book spine (golden rose) and the foliage on the jug. A goodee!
There's a bit of indirect 'mise en abyme' going on here as Penny has pointed out. Definitely a goodee!
