I agree with the above, but I found all the lines of light and shadow coming through the flower really neat.
Great job!

The comments really is what makes a win like this so special. They all really do mean a lot to me. It took me a few minutes to figure out why all of a sudden this one pic was getting so many comments...needless to say I was thrilled when I saw "POTD":)

Thanks to the judge/judges who chose From Downunder for POTD. It really is such an honor to win POTD here and it really made my day.
