Hi Cathy,
Thanks for the comment! I took some time to look at you gallery and you have some great shots. I love the Buzz effects on your photos. I have done that on a few also, but yours are amazing. Love the one with the old truck and the one with the cow!
Also, Congrats on all your BP winners, very impressive!

I really like what you did with this, turning an ordinary weed into an interesting work of art. Love the color too. :) Congratulations, Pat! #1629647

Thank You all for the nice comments. I am beginning to think dandelions are the most photographed weed because it has such character. I just haven't seen it done in purple before, but I loved it :-)
I also redid this changing the background to white. If you happen to see if let me know which one you think looks best.

Thanks Again and Happy Shooting!
