Love the black background. The light is awesome. The color is superb, red can be troubling to capture so this is really great. Love the simplicity of the image. #1233724

This is a fantastic capture, Elida, rich and dramatic and sensuous and oh so romantic. It's my pick for favorite from your February entries.
Your Valentine's Day POTD was a perfect pick -- bright and cheery and spilling over with love. Congratulations again.
I also liked Under the Dogwood -- very nice square frame composition; Symmetric -- the focus is perfect!!; and Pink Tulips -- so fresh and graceful. Good luck this month. #8446387
