Bunny Snow level-deluxe 11/18/2011 6:18:27 PM

This is such an exquisite image. It is not only a gorgeous flower, but those red hot fire-like colors are wonderful and are extremely difficult to achieve from my own experience. The razor sharp crispness and clarity of your winner is superb. But equally amazing is your perfect placement in the frame. Even I can see the beauty of your composition, which is multi-fold. And, I'm still a novice when it comes to composition.

Congratulations, this image is perfect in my vision. I feel like I can touch the petals and sense their smoothness. Very well deserved First Place winner!
