Re: Japanese Hibiscus

Paul I am thinking these shots remind me of the curtains at the Opera House in Covent garden - opening to reveal some stunning Tenor or Soprano ! really GREAT

Re: Japanese Hibiscus

very very nice indeed, would look great blown up and on my wall, great colours, real depth and good detail in the centre....both are real winners in my opinion.
