Nice! Great concept. About the only thing you could do to improve this is to have that plugged into a wall socket but maybe leave that for Take Two II!

nice idea; frame is overdone, crop is too tight
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/02/2006 03:26:39 PM
Great idea, wish the flower had been slightly more in focus. That looks like a Scottish plug ;-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/02/2006 02:19:49 PM
good choice of subjects and I asume the connection is the plug as a vase, good luck 9
