    Jolly good show :). Nice high key effecty stuff there, they definately have a style which suits the images. Any chance of a quick run down on what you did post-process. I always tend to do the opposite and go for low-key, it just seems to be the natural way I do stuff.

    Cheers

    I like the last 5 too. The 3 shots by the beach really stand out for me.

    But I must point out, the baby mannequin (if it is) pic is going to give me nightmares - Does anyone else get that creepy feeling from that picture?

    Wow, the detail in the close shot of the flower is pretty awesome! Very well done indeed

    What are these flowers called and where can you get them from. My sister has these pictures on her wall that she bought from Ikea and I said I could do something like that. I quite fancy giving it a go :)

    Thanks again for your kind comment guys.

    KIMMETT I shoot in RAW so I can adjust the exposure if I need. In Photoshop I adjust curves first, than contrast with saturation and sharpening in the end if needed.

    Phoenix_Cosmos sorry I don't know the name of the flowers.

    Orange Peel shots above taken with D70 and 18-70mm kit lens ( shot 2), Sigma 70-300 APO version (shots - 1, 3, 4 and 9) and Nikon 50mm f/1.8 (shots – 5, 6, 7, 8)

    Thanks :)

    Hmm, nice photos, I like number 5 the most though - something to do with the colours and contrast I think.
