These flowers and leaves caught my eye the other day and the resulting scannography pic evoked thoughts of spices -- with the fiery red cardinal flowers that's an easy metaphor but the salt-and-pepper leaves and the honeysuckle flowers that seemed akin to spice pods added to the mix!

Love the title Dale and this is a humdinger of a picture! Gorgeous!

Lovely, would like to see the daisy or two in the foreground rather than covered. Just saying, love this black background, how is it done?

Yeah, should have positioned one of those black eyed Susans in the forefront!
The black background comes about partly via the technique -- using a scanner as the camera in a darkened room --but mostly through detailed editing in Photoshop, editing the background to be pure black. This usually takes 20 or 25 hours because of the high resolution but I think it is worth it because of the way it makes the flowers pop.
