I went to my florist after my voice lesson last Friday and saw these. I had never seen red peonies before and I was told that they were from Peru. Michael, the florist, was saving them for center pieces for an event and said he needed 15. He only had 15. He also said they did not know what they were getting so he let me have two. Thanks, Michael!

Good use of the color red. I wish the photo would have been a tad brighter.

Really nice light makes this better than the typical flower image.

Beautiful flowers. Great colour and composition. I'd like to know your method of getting red flowers to actually look so red. I am always disappointed to find mine turn out pink. 9
