WOW..this is gorgeous Nicole. It has that "elegant" flare to it. The comp and lighting are fantastic..B&W is a great choice for Calla's..and your tonality here is just awesome...and those water drops really top it off and give it that something extra special...!!!!

A wonderful take on often photographed subject. The details and textures in the flowers combined with sharpness and brilliance of the water drops makes this an outstanding shot. The diagonal placement of the lily just adds to the perfection of the photograph. In one word...Outstanding!!

Thank you very much, Jessica! I planted a bunch of these last fall so I'm looking forward to photographing them again in the spring! It is my second favorite... the first being Orchids which I havn't even photographed yet!! Something I should probably do! :)
