Duane Carter September 30, 2004

Beautiful, Murry!!!! I love the multiple planes created by the different colors and textures of the plants. I think I prefer the buzzed rendition, because it seems to simplify it. #813800

Mellanie September 30, 2004

I think this is very pretty, Murry! I think the buzzed version is the better of the two, IMO!!! #813818

Murry Grigsby September 30, 2004

Wendy M. Amdahl level-deluxe September 30, 2004

Hi Murry! Love the range of colors and textures. I would choose the buzzed version also because it seems to do a great job of grouping each type of flower. Nice work either way! #813888

Dale Gast September 30, 2004

Good example of why we love to Buzz!!! Excellent..More buzz wouldn't have hurt it any, either. #813995

Greg McCroskery level-deluxe September 30, 2004

Murry,
I hate it when I twist in the shour! Very nice image -- I like the use of focal compression! I see we have a new toy!
God Bless,
Greg
