Les, Les, Les, you just keep cranking out fantastic photos. This one is really something. The curve and line of the stem leading the eye deep into the photo where it is met with the burst of color and shape. Great job.

Thanks for all your comments on my flower image. I shot the original in vertical, then rotated and mirrored the image for the final look. I like the left to right flow) I do not do flower pictures, so this was way out of my norm.

To the contrary, Les, I would say you DO "do flower pictures" and very well, by the looks of it!! ;) This reminds me of one of Susana P's tulips, so I'd say you're well on your way.
