This Dahlia is a resubmit. It is one of my favorites. I cropped it a bit to make this a full frame floral.

This was taken at the Botanic Gardens in Denver, CO.

This one is breath-taking, Melissa! Really, the more I look at it the more astounding it becomes! The crop is perfect; you have put the viewer "into" the heart of the flower. The result is sheer magic! Glad you re-submitted this VERY spectacular shot!

In my book, #1 for November, Melissa! I think it's #1 on both lists I talked about! I am partial to nature-shots and florals, as you know: but in ALL respects, this is stellar work! Not only is it technically SUPERB, it conveys a rich nostalgic mood to me and I could look at this for hours. I would definitely hang this on my wall!

I made a note earlier to browse your gallery after seeing a few of your beautiful submissions. But I don't know where to begin after going thru it!! I chose this one because I love dahlias but really, Melissa, they are all so remarkably, fantastically outstanding! There aren't enough adjectives! :) :)
