What a special gift you have, Colleen. This photo is soo perfect. It looks totally natural, as if you just stumbled upon it on leisurely walk one day. It's also technically perfect, but goes way beyond that and approaches what we all aim for (but few achieve) - pure art. I think your exploration of backgrounds is helping to take you to a new level. #639825

Thanks so much Ken, Connie, Kitty, Tamera, Dominick, Bill, Michelle, Harmeet, Katarina, Colette, and Gail! Your encouragement is **terrific**!

I'm really glad it looks natural because it pretty much is--almost any way you thrown down a clump of scabiosas looks good--they have such nice gentle curves in their stems. #4182401

Colleen, this is very beautiful, just as all of your flower shots. I thought I had commented, but guess I didn't. I laughed at your remark about the title! I really love the contrast between the flower, which I think of as delicate, and the stone. And good luck! #4310870

Thanks so much, Carol! I really appreciate your support (and humor)! :D #4311010
