This is truly lovely! One of my favorite flowers. I brought a cigar-sized plumeria plant home 2 1/2 yrs ago and it's barely getting it's first bloom... any day now we should see it open. Your photo was a nice reminder that it will be worth the wait!

This is a beautiful presentation of these five blossoms, perfectly laid out. As everyone else has said, it has a wonderful freshness as well as superb composition. I have seen plumeria blossoms only in photos where the petals appear to be relatively thick; are they? Lovely plant.

Janine, two things going on here: one, your photo is truly great... rich and gorgeous. There's much more, but I think it's all been said. Second, you've been faithful and kind by always leaving encouragement to so many people for their photos (yep, we see your name in the discussions all the time), that it seems like a friend of all of ours has won Grand Prize, which makes it all even that much better. Huge congratulations.
