Beautiful, Murry!!!! I love the multiple planes created by the different colors and textures of the plants. I think I prefer the buzzed rendition, because it seems to simplify it.

I think this is very pretty, Murry! I think the buzzed version is the better of the two, IMO!!!

Hi Murry! Love the range of colors and textures. I would choose the buzzed version also because it seems to do a great job of grouping each type of flower. Nice work either way!

Good example of why we love to Buzz!!! Excellent..More buzz wouldn't have hurt it any, either.

Murry,
I hate it when I twist in the shour! Very nice image -- I like the use of focal compression! I see we have a new toy!
God Bless,

I love the mixture of colors here and both images look great I really like abstracts that are done well, yours being a fine example. I think I will have to go with the BuZZ here. Great job Murry.
