    This is a stunning full frame floral, Nancy. The light is lovely, the colors rich and the focus excellent. It deserves to go on.

It jumped off the winners page! Such rich vibrant color, glorious detail and with a "come-hither-for-a-closer-look" invitation (which I obliged happily!) :) :) Marvelous work, Marie! Congratulations on a beautiful First Place Win!
