Great idea. I really like the half and half in this case, with the star of the show in the black half. I would be tempted to crop to a 4 x 5 to eliminate the rightmost flower to keep the all the shorties at a more uniform level.

G'day *DOUGLAS*!

This truly is a 'standout' photograph! It reminds me of that old saying. "There's always one, isn't there!?" 8-)
Looking so much more dramatic with a black background rather than a bright blue sky, the black/green/yellow colour contrast is stunning in this presentation.
With all those friendly faces in good light and detail, no wonder this has done you well.

My heartiest, sincerest Aussie congratz for the EP and 1st PLACE awards.
