The colors are exquisite. I love how the daffodils are laid across the rim of this beautiful, fluted bowl. This is so nice, I think.

I was just viewing your gallery-your work is gorgeous. You really capture that special beauty flowers have. This one particularly caught my eye. Graceful with awesome colors, and the details are so sharp.

Melissa - I'll do you one better. I think that Colleen has THE BEST florals at BP. This shot, as well as half her gallery, deserves a GOLD medal!

Her compositions offer a fresh (and beautiful!) finished look about them.

We're talking some of the best raw talent on this site - right up there with Marc Adamus' landscapes and Manny Librodo's portraits!

I'm so happy for you, Colleen. The best talent deserves recognition!

We all know it's hard to shoot a beautiful shot. It's even harder to shoot an original shot. But it's darn near impossible to do both. Well, you've done it here and throughout your gallery as well.

Hey everybody - do yourself a favor and take a look at Colleen's beautiful floral gallery. Nobody, but nobody, at BetterPhoto.com composes floral shots better than she does!
