Beautiful bouqet, wonderful treatment.
I was going to say, I'm happy when I'm right but then realized I no longer think that way. Older and wiser.

@bluechameleon: Your photograph today, Sharon, absolutely blows me away. You would make John Paul Caponigro proud.

A beautiful image that is very appealing. I especially like the color and detail. The "exploding" background gives it a distinctive setting.

Ajay from Pune, India

I really like that white background you've given to the white flower. Makes this shot very effective.

Very effective post-processing, Jack; I like it.

1 Mar 2009 5:32pm

@Judy: It was fun, Judy. However, it was hard to cover up the gorgeous blue sky in the background.

Love the effect. All of your flowers are excellent, but this one really stands out as special.

2 Mar 2009 1:00am

@willow: Thanks, Willow. Of all the flowers (including our orchard) in our former yard, and there were tons of them, I think that I liked the plum blossoms best. Each Spring, I would go bonkers. The only down side of this photograph is that it doesn't show the gorgeous blue sky.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

The blossoms are gorgeous and the frame very cool.
