Very creative Lori and a great image....... #42869

Lori Ditlefsen May 26, 2019

Thank you very much Shirley. I've had my camera for less than a week now, and I love the macro setting. It's the first time I've ever been able to get clear detailed close ups. #128862

Brinn MacDougall May 26, 2019

Fun shot,,good colors..good idea! #128913

Roseann E. Dreasher May 26, 2019

I love it too! beautiful colors! and that perfect little red fingernail!! : ) #128918

Lori Ditlefsen May 26, 2019

Thank you very much Brinn! I had taken shots of the daisies by themselves earlier, but they seemed to be missing something. This set it off nicely with an added fun twist. :) #128919

Nancy L. Ferrell May 26, 2019

Murry Grigsby May 26, 2019

Very creative and well done, Lori! I love the strong graphics of your design and those wonderful bold colors. This should do well in the contest. #129109

Charlene Bayerle May 26, 2019

WOW Lori, this is great. Great ideaa also. Very pretty. #129174

Lori Ditlefsen May 26, 2019

Thanks for the support Murry! I love the new camera, and playing with Macro is something new and very fun. #129181

Lori Ditlefsen May 26, 2019

Thanks Charlene, I appreciate your comments. I wish I could see this picture the way others see it. My monitor is set up so that I see what my printer prints. I'll have to go look at this on another monitor. :) #129203

Thank you Evy and Carol and again to everyone. Wow, I didn't expect this kind of response, but I sure do appreciate it! I'll be having fun with the macro again real soon. I love it! #129500

Piper Lehman May 26, 2019

Very nice! It's nice to see something totally different around here! Very creative idea. I don't think I ever would've thought to put the stem through the paper, but then I'm slow like that...

Hi Piper, The idea of using paper to begin with came from Murry Grigsby. He had put paper behind one of his flower shots. Since I was getting alot of clutter behind my flower shots, I decided to try it. I've learned lots of new tricks since being here. I'm a baby at photography so I could use all the help I could get. Now it's just a matter of using the things I've learned to better my shots. Thanks for commenting on my work. I really did not expect this kind of response but I'm so glad everyone likes it. :) #129761

Timothy L. Leggett May 26, 2019

beautiful work, I like the fingernail in there and the blue paper is a great idea.

Thanks Tim! :) #130441

Hi Lori,
This is a fantastically simple image. The message is so strong, that the photo does not need a title at all.
"He loves me, he loves me not" immediately sprang to my mind, even though I am Polish and actually I thought "Kocha, nie kocha..."
Great work.

Anette Linnea Rasmussen November 18, 2003

Beautiful image and a great work! #272969

Lori Ditlefsen November 18, 2003

Love it!!

Michael Brown May 28, 2004

Unique and different!
Eye popping rich colors and the composition really pulls my eye in to the image.

I watched my daughter pulling petals. This gave me the idea of running the stem through blue paper,having her hold it from under the paper, then shot it from the top using my Nikon 5400 macro setting. Taken in the shade early last evening.
