Some plant material that had seen better days, before these cold, dark days of winter were upon us....

A low-key approach to match the mood of the plants.

The 2nd daisy and the Lupin seed head for me.
But a great use for garden waste.
And a great set.
Good shooting
I know what i like, If not always why.

Excellent creativity and planning with the light for these. .... The lighting is so natural looking it could easily be flash 😉

Hey! Come on all you "natural light photographers" ... See if you can do what Coker has done here so beautifully .... Make natural light so good that it looks just like flash!

I have to say i love natural lighting (most probably because i'm rubbish at flash) these are fine examples.
Kind regards Maria

Really like these, particularly the darkness of both the execution, and the mood... almost flower skeletons...
