POTD September 25 2012
Sometimes the camera provides a real surprise in the image. These are zinnias with the background provided by a blue spruce in my yard. No color filters or textures have been added.

Congratulations Heather on this beautiful image. The color and clarity of the zinnia are fabulous...selective focus and blurred background are terrific. Kudos to you and the blue spruce for a great capture and great background respectively :-)
