Bojan is right Colette. It is simple, effective, and may I add beautiful. You let the beauty of the flower speak for itself, so your presentation is pure, you do not need to enhance it with artwork. Love the framing and the vertical look. The colors are gorgeous and I just love that pov. Beauty out of the camera my friend. #10810120
