Nice shot, Dan! The red and blue really make a commanding shot! Did you PS this or let the flower soak up blue food coloring in water for a few days? It doesn't look PS'd if you did... looks "natural". Nice offset composition and great detail on those soft petals. Great work:-) #813180

NOTE TO SELF: Nature doesn't make this kind of flower in blue, florists do. The blue dye on your hands should be a reminder.
