Going back some 10 years to a shot of a dark red-centred gerbera I bought for an interior shot. This is a stack in Helicon Focus, but I cannot recall of how many images. Vignette added.

Hi Ian,

A very spectacular photo-illustration. High key treatment and fading of the stem work very well in your photo. I have no nits and this one is outstanding…Jim

I like this very much. Striking! Well done!

Beautiful, Ian. I love the way the paler outer petals almost fade into the background. A very good job on the vignette.

Striking presentation. No nits from me.
