Clematiscope Photo Contest FIRST PLACE Winner

My clematis are blooming early this year due to rain. Having photographed them for so many years I decided to experiment this year.

thanx everyone! This was a fun effect in PaintshopPro. I'm going to experiment with it some more. I was surprised how the DOF changed and it gave it a 3-D look. The clematis is this one without the bee. ;~)

This is so exciting for me! Thanks alot for all the kind words! Wow, I don't know what to say, I'm so stunned. ;~) Thank you for considering me. There is so much talent at Better Photo, I never expected to win. I have learned alot from all of you.

I wish I had more time to participate in the forums and community. I have some neck problems and can't sit here as often as I'd like to. Thanks again!
