beautiful image. great use of the narrow DOF to isolate the main bloom and tone down some of the background distractions. great color palette as well! #4660557

Thanks, Melissa & Christopher.

Flowers as a subject have proved more difficult to me that I thought. Funny, because they hold still for you unlike what I normally photograph! #4672815
