William, this is absolutely stunning. I love your work, but this photo has a softness about it not always apparent in your photography. Congratulations on some beautiful work. #659689

William T 7/20/2004 2:35:51 PM

Thank you all for the encouraging comments. I have submitted this photo to other sites and received many compliments as well but was disqualified for contest because I lost its original. This photo was a color shot and applied some PS effects. I am happy the way it turned out to be a rather unique looking flower. Please remember to make backups of your original copy of your photo shots. Good luck to you all.
