This is the first challenge I've entered in almost 6 months. I've missed it but it was good having a break, too.

I have always liked Bleeding Hearts, a flowering small bushy plant that likes to grow in the shade. Usually they are a magenta/red/pink color - this is the first time I've seen them in white. I thought they were really pretty and such a nice heart shape.

Editing: Crop & Rotate; Adjustment Layers for levels, curves, saturation & selective color; flatten image; Showdow/Highlight tool - reduce midtone contrast -5; noise removal with Helicon Filter; crop again; resize; smart sharpen; save for web.

Hey Cornish Cousin, Great comeback shot...I missed your comeback (We were in Miss. a week, then Ky. a week and then Minn. a few days) (18 states, about 6,000 miles)

My blister has healed. The family is ready to do the Dunes.

Let me know when you and Jack can meet us. I may even take the day off to avoid the weekend crouds.

Good subject, but I find the foreground and background a touch too distracting, especially the other flowers. Perhaps a woder aperture would help.

Too much of the picture is out of focus. Just the center flower make a nice picture. All three flowers (if they were in focus) would also make a nice shot.
