Thanks for your comments, Colleen, Paul and Diane!

Diane, as I looked closely at the center of each flower the petals reminded me of a banana. As the flower opens the petals split, hence the name "Banana Split".

Yes, Wong, they are all the same flower on multiple layers with drop shadow added to some of the flowers. Thanks for your comment!

Congratulations Tom on this full frame finalist. What a beauty. I give you a good portion of the credit on the finalist I have this time. Several months ago you commented on a photo of mine - said it reminded you of a sword. I turned it over, resubmitted it - named it excaliber and it is in the finals. I am not sure I would have done that had you not taken the time to tell me your thoughts. So congratulations and THANK YOU!
