LauraS from Chico, United States

Very beautifully shot, interesting that you chose no color, so we can focus in on the textures and shapes.

7 May 2009 7:43pm

@LauraS: Part of my reasoning was that I couldn't the bottom part of the flowers as sharp as I wanted in color. A little softness there seems ok in this rendition.

Tracy from La Selva Beach, United States

This treatment really seems to emphasize the form and shape of these flowers! Beautiful! Thank you so much my friend, for thinking of me this week!
