Smoke bomb eh? ;^) Clever! Notice it didn't chase that fly (lower middle) off.

Yep. Looks like this lens works just fine, at least with the right photog behind the camera. ;^)

Has an ethereal, other worldly feeling. Neat way to meet the challenge. Beautiful effect. I hope you'll tell how you did it! I wanna try! : )

This would look great printed to look like an oil painting -- nice light and texture.

Looks like a painting, but I see haloes around the stems/flowers because of sharpening. 6

The twisted sense of scale here is bizarre. Well done.

This is neat. I like the color of the smoke against the color of the flowers.

Love it! It seems a painting! Wonderful colors!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/20/2005 07:51:34 AM
This shot really appeals to me. The color of the flowers and the texture appears to be watercolor or impressionistic..love the background colors fading to greens..just a wonderful picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a very nice photo. The colors and composition are terrific. The pods are a nice counterpoint to the full blooms. With all the smoke (?) I hope no flowers were injured or killed in the attempt (lol). I am struggling a bit to find the tie in to the theme but you're in good company since 80% of the photos struggled with this as well. So i don't think that will hurt your scores. Good luck inthe voting.
