Thanks so much for your comments. These are from my garden. I picked them as buds and put in warm water then put under a light so they would open up.

This is wonderful. I love the way the B&@ brings out the structure of the flowers...great comp, too. Because flowers are usually all about the color, it's great to actually appreciate the flower "architecturally"! :-) My Dad is color blind and collects art. Their favorite art dealer says Dad appreciates the structure of the paintings, and that's why he chooses some of the best examples from a given artist. Same deal here.
