This is so beautiful. The flower looks like it is floating in that sea of muted beautiful colors. Congratulations on such a strong finish.

How did you do that???????? I'm impressed... Amazing photo you took!
12/24/2005 04:12:55 AM
very cool! did you glue the flower to a window? can't figure how else you might have accomplished this charmingly simple and satisfying image!

Nice effect... the flower looks detached from anything -- which I presume was your intent.

It is interesting the way the flower appears to be floating in space. The bright blue clashes a bit with the fleshy pink background (not the nices shade of pink). I don't like the frame at all, especially since it incorporates more of that pink. This is a somewhat unusual take on the average flower shot but ultimately, it doesn't quite gel for me.

I love this shot. How could it be better? Not sure. I think I'd prefer it if the flower were in the centre right, instead of top right. Not complaining though.

the border kind of takes away a little. but nicely done.
12/21/2005 04:20:19 PM
I simply love the use of focus and colour.
12/21/2005 03:25:17 AM
Aw puccinu :)

Beautiful image. I think the pink inner frame ruins it for me. However, the colors are just fantastic as well as the focus. 7

Very colorful and artfully done. Love the border also.
