    This image was taken at The Lost Gardens of Heligan. The original had more background which rather distracted from the bloom. I cropped tighter and the used PSE5 to select the bloom and apply Gaussian Blur to the background.

      You'll like The Lost Gardens of Heligan - www.heligan.com/flash_intro.html - a labour of love that's very different from the usual public gardens.

      We've actually got some of these at the OU's Walton Hall campus!

      You've spotted my evil scheme to pass T189!!!

      I only have to hope that the other 9 images have associations with Walton Hall and I've passed ROTFL.
