Colleen Farrell 7/28/2007 4:18:15 PM

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. #4572598

adrifil 7/28/2007 4:24:48 PM

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! #4572622
