This was taken after receiving flowers from Jon in June.

I had actually submitted before knowing of his passing, so now it holds even more for me. I hope it doesn't bomb like my other "Best of..." images.

It is surprising sometimes, and sometimes not, how things will happen. This shot, which you submitted before Jon's passing, ever so delicately and beautifully illustrates it just the same. A beautiful tribute.

Oh, Charlene, this one was yours! Even not knowing the story, I thought it was one of the best flower photos I'd ever seen. But knowing that this flower was one that Jon sent to you to say he loved you makes it even more beautiful. It really IS a "best of 2008" photo, isn't it. On so many levels.

I pray for your heart to be comforted every single day and even someday to heal!

A fabulous soft and gentle and romantic image. The delicate touch you gave this in lighting and editing really gives this one a wonderful lift. I am so happy it scored as well as it did.

Excellent still life. Soft but nothing is lost. Love the pastels and good minimalism too.

very nice, love the sharp lines that blur into softness, crisp and clean feel, great leading line and i love your negative space, makes this whole shot scream.

I love this! And I don't typically get all warm and fuzzy over flower photos, but I love the soft whites and the dreamy feel. Of all flower photos, THIS is a 10 big time!

Fantastic shot that represents "high key" or "high contast" lighting. Eye catching, well done. Good composition to finish it off too.
