I totally adore this shot, the first time I saw it, and now even more so now.
The clump of flowers just randomly growing what seems like out of a an old tree trunk, even if it isn't it seems like it, I much prefer flowers to be shot this way in the nature provided. I also love the blurred barn in the background.

You get one of my Verineat awards Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1014169.jpg for this challenge and a 10.

Great setup. Love how you added context.

Very nice, and a great twist on the typical straight flower shot. Lovely photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/07/2012 09:48:46 AM
yes
some might argue on composition (point of view, mainly)
still, it's vivid, full of life, simple, warm, it's "shezzy"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2012 09:55:00 PM
Yes, Yes. This has so much adventure and attraction. Love the background that makes a foil for the flowers. Good seeing, of course.
