Playing around in the studio, 1/125 sec, f/13, 100 mm macro lens. Rotated 180 degrees. Couldn't decide which to post. The second I would call Swan Dive! What do you think?

I think they are both gorgoues, Janet! I like Swan Dive the best, though!

Swan Dibe is my favorite, I think. Both are just dandy, though.

LOL, Carolyn! Dibe is my brain this morning! Sometimes it is better to stick with 'as shot'. Thanks guys!

I like them both, but I think the Dive is worth posting again.

Both look great--maybe go with swan dive for something unique?

I especially love the one you "selected" for today. It is just beautiful! I love the background and the curve of the stem!

My vote is for "swan dive" because of its different angle of presentation, Janet ... though both are very beautiful!!
Much Aloha,
Stan
