You know what I really like about this, the few straws that are out of place. Usually shots like this are so perfect, but I really like that this isn't. Great shot, love the colros! #595255

Thankyou Balnca and Dale Ann for your kind remarks! Dale Ann, while I was setting up the shot, a tiny gnat flew onto the straws and, without thinking, I blew him off, upsetting the straws as well. As I began to straighten them, I thought the dip on the right side added some visual interest, so I left them. You photos are incredible, so your comments mean even more to me!!! Best wishes! #595338
