I really like the way the 3 tulips arch in unison. All of the greens set of the read nicely. bAckdrop of course makes the 3 subject stand out perfectly

great contrast- top 5
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/05/2010 03:53:18 PM
Beautiful symmetry, composition, and colors.
My only tiny nitpick (that doesn't affect your score at all) is that the top flower is intersecting the leaf of the second, and I wish that they were just slightly separated so that that didn't happen.
