Marsha S. Smith 5/5/2005 3:11:57 PM

I love this time of year, Nobi. There is just beauty everywhere. This is a gorgeous shot. The road is such a neat shade of blue - could almost be water. #1323297

Dan Holm 5/5/2005 3:14:12 PM

This is absolutely GORGEOUS, Nobi!! It has a soft, dream-like quality to it! #1323302

William C. Raco 5/5/2005 3:34:12 PM

I really like this one, Nobi!
The composiiton and speeding car are superb.
Very well done!


Nobu Nagase 5/5/2005 5:05:40 PM

Looking at this now after upload, I should added more contrast on this, perhaps...

Carla, Colette, Kerby, Marsha, Dan, and Bill, thank you very much...

Marsha, I agree with you... wildflowers are fabulous, aren't they?..., after bluebonnets and indian paintbrushes, now, it's time for these coreopsis, pink evening primrose, indian blankets, and mexican hats, and even black-eyed susan. ...but I always wonder why susan got black-eyed... :D #1323520

Kathleen K. Parker 5/5/2005 5:09:18 PM

Nobi, this is beautiful despite the no show matching cars! Susan got black eyed because she stood in the road waiting for a red or yellow car, Nobinn.

I love the blue in this image, Nobi! I think the red or yellow you were looking and waiting for would have taken away from the beauty of the flowers. Awesome shot! #1395413

"coreopsis", wildflowers that are seen
just about anywhere this time of the year in Central Texas.
...I went out to shoot these roadside flowers in late evening
to get the cars in motion on the road.
I wanted a yellow or red car, but were no show... :D
