Very nice, Christian..I like how these soft little flowers are up against a hard texture! The clarity is good, too! #187313

Thanks for the comment, Jane! I forgot to mention that the weather was overcast, slightly foggy, which makes for ideal close-up conditions (ie no special flash diffuser needed). The clarity comes in part from increasing contrast in the photo-editing software.

Thanks for the ongoing support Amy! As you already know, beauty springs more readily from the hands of a child, than an adult's ... all I have to do is follow up with the camera - easy! ;-)

Thanks Patricia! Perhaps the single most difficult challenge for me is slowing down enough to really *see*. I agree completely with your remark.

Thanks Len! I very surprised in fact. I rarely stop to snap the flowers. Good grief- what's next - macro photography??
