Flora is a great close up image. You must be very pleased to get flowers on that cactus, my wife is an avid cactii collector so I know that some of them have lovely flowers, although rare to see. Great job all round.

Great close up shot, I love the contrast between the delicate flowers and the spikes. Nice sharpness throughout!

Very nice Pete, none of my cacti ( from years back) ever flowered.
You are not treating them right, we have a couple in our conservatory which flower every year now, one flowers more than once. There are more flowers now on that one I shot, they go nearly all around the tip.
My Mrs (Head Gardener) says not to water them over winter.

Lovely macro shot. Well taken.

Liking the muted colours. It fills the frame nicely.
That's lovely Pete. Nicely stacked and framed.

Love the subtle colours of this along with the details and texture, very nice indeed.
Unusual flora and very pleasing colour.

Thank you all for your comments. Keep well

Thanks to every one who has commented on my submission for the Time theme, all very kind.

I really like that Pete very clever and well executed.
I think this is my favourite "Time" shot so far. Love the work put in to create this :clap:
Lovely idea Pete and well done. It's just perfect.
That's a lovely composite - very well done.
What a great idea Pete, very nice.
What an excellent idea and tribute, perfect.
Hi Pete, nice idea and very well executed. Also a very nice and touching tribute.
Nice bit of photoshopping and a nice idea
Lovely idea and nicely done. The fact it's personal makes it even better.
Well done Pete. A really lovely take on the theme and well executed.
Great personal take on the theme!
Time
I think you've nailed it with that shot. It's got all of the elements for time.

For My Snappers Choice and High Key Technique I have some Crab Apple Blossom

Wk15 Snapper Choice and Technique
by Peter, on Flickr

I took many photos of Blossom, Apple, Crab Apple and Cherry Tree, but try as I might it was extremly difficult to get some sky and nothing else in the frame. It was our house or the neighbours houses, or leaves from other branches. And with the winds the other day as well. I did have an image of a pink magnolia flower, but it had leaves in the wrong place, then the wind blew the flowers off.
