Judith MacArthur level-classic December 02, 2006

Had to add my compliment on this fine shot to all the others, Cheryl. Such an intriguing point of view. I'm not quite sure what part of the flower I'm looking at! #3660084

Thankyou Judith. Thats right up on that passion flower.The center is over to the right. Thanks for visiting #3661180

Judith MacArthur level-classic December 03, 2006

I see...the ivory "post" misled me...It must be the base of a stamen or pistel (not sure of my botanical terms!)..It's a great one, Cheryl. #3661241

You got it!! Thanks Judith #3661582

Doug K. Herrman April 22, 2007

Your gallery has so many beautiful flower shots, it really didn't make any diff which one I picked...
Your use of shallow DoF is astounding. After dozens of years of my having 'learned' to use really small apertures on flowers, your work got me turned around. #4196742
