How did this happen?!!! There were about 109 Flower Finalists that were better than mine; I wasn't even going to enter this except my wife liked the colors. The composition was a little unorthodox, but I trusted her eye.(Hey, maybe I'd better listen to her more often!) Otherwise, I would have to say it was a healthy dose of BEGINNER'S LUCK!

Anyway, thank you all very much for your kind words about this photo (even though yours were better, some really much better!) and your sincere words of support. No wonder BP is so popular and growing - everyone encourages each other, even the newcomers! I look forward to seeing more of your photos. If I could coin a phrase, I would say, "YOUR GALLERIES ARE MY SCHOOLHOUSE!!"

Deservedly, the winner of the contest!
Breathtakingly beautiful. But it is not only this...
It is harmonious (in colors and elements in the scenery).
And it is framed perfectly.
It seems painting... But it is picture.
It is picture... But it seems painting!
