Here's a small set I took yesterday of some Cardoons (Cynara cardunculus) whilst visiting Charleston Farmhouse in Sussex (UK)......country home to some of the Bloomsbury set.
The small walled garden was fantastic, a riot of colour and all sorts of flowers, but the best shots I managed were of these cardoons.

Any and all comments gratefully received.

Apologies for the delay in answering the questions, as the post was bumped down the list I've only just noticed your reply.

First off, thanks for the question as it really has made me think a lot. Essentially the answer is...I didn't concentrate enough when framing the shots, that's why the tops are cut off. Partly due to the strong wind blowing both me/the lens and the plant around, but mostly because I wasn't concentrating enough on the image in the viewfinder...too many snapshots and not enough photographs!

Thanks for the question as it has made me slow down when taking this sort of picture and concentrate much more on the image in the viewfinder.

Many thanks

Ah, well we've all been there! I was curious as to intent, and it appears that there was none! :wink:
