This is a beautiful picture, Gregory, very elegant and wonderfully detailed. I also appreciate your sharing the information about how you metered this shot. I really learned from it. Incidentally, I've never seen crocuses in autumn. I didn't even know that they ever grew in autumn. #9926

Greg, great shot!! I like how you brought the flowers into the frame at an angle. It definitely adds to the over all mood. The darker backgrown brings out the colors and keeps your eyes fixed on your subject. A good example of keeping it simple, and making a statement. Good work! #18943
