Excellent image. It is a shame that it only got 2nd place. I think that it should be higher. #1892307

GORGEOUS image, Tom...and MOST deserving of its Second Place recognition!! The clarity of detail, textures, rain droplets, lighting, tones AND composition here all are EXCEPTIONAL!! :o)

The buds and flowers on this plant truly are pretty, but here in Australia Prickly Pair is considered a noxious weed!! Your image just shows, though, that there is still beauty to be found in 'weeds' - LOL!! ;o) #6123086
