    Gosh, this is so striking. I love how perfectly in focus the center "Star" is. It's hard to know if we are under water seeing this or in a beautiful garden.

Love it, Rey!

These are spectacular, Rey! And what a perfect capture - that center flower is strikingly sharp and detailed! And the green cacti almost look like little stars themselves! Wonderful capture!

Sheesh, Rey... I take a break for a few days, and suddenly all these terrific photos from Huntington Gardens pop up, begging to be commented on!
And it's easy to describe my reaction to this flower: LOVE it!
Everything Laura said is right on the money. Love the main flower's 3-D look. To sum it up:
WINNER!!
