This goes beyond your usual floral image. Michelle, I love how the flower fills most but not all the frame with it's beautiful purples bathed in a clean light and the sharpness of the main pedals and then those streaks of fire accented in white as if the flower was leaving a launch pad. Certified Art! #5521331
