Ann Lyssenko level-addict October 09, 2014

Acknowledgement has more meaning when we work hard to accomplish something. I had photographed this bed of zinnias the week before this image was taken and had been unsuccessful at something-focus, bokeh, composition-something. So when I looked at this image which needed so little correction in my own mind I was delighted. Thanks for the added encouragement from outside my own head. Ann #11155010
