Thanks so much, Pat! I have so many shots of these pots, both horizontal and vertical (and with different lenses, too). This was the one that finally "clicked" for me. :)

Great repetitive pattern with wonderful texture and comp. But, who pulled up all the flowers? :D

Thanks so much, Raymond, Evy, Renee, Carol T., Cindy, Vikram, Melissa, Glenn, Bill, Carol S. and Nikki! I really appreciate your great comments!

Carol--Don't worry, all the flowers are still here ... planted in garden beds and "ready for their closeups" (to borrow your title)! :D

Thanks so much, Peaches, Laurie and Jennifer!

I'm so glad everybody likes this. I didn't arrange the pots, other than to move them closer together here and there. But when I composed the photo, I made sure the patterned pot was on the rule of thirds grid so the eye would have something to rest on.

The composition is excellent! The depth of field, giving a sense of proximity, the circular forms and texture of the vases really catch our attention!
