A couple of flowers that make me think of girls from the 50s with big hair and flips at the ends. Hence the title.

Shot handheld with the 50mm and 4x closeup filter mounted up. Useful thing, that!

Wow! Great eye! I never would have seen this! That's for the headline too, if it weren't for that, I wouldn't have noticed your vision!

Good title! I'm not crazy about the cropping... right between squared and rectangle, if that makes sense... But everything else is excellent.

You have a winner here. I like this because it's original, and the title suits those gorgeous flowers, this has to ribbon.
