  8. Exquiste photo of a beautiful flower made even lovelier by your brilliant photographic skills. In plain ole English- that is sure pretty and you know know how to bring out the best of your subject. A-one photographers are able to capture a subject and make it look better than in reality. I read that a long time ago. I believe you possess those skills.

  11. Excellent lighting! It seems to be emanating from within. The rich, dark background plays a crucial role displaying the beauty by contrasting the luminous subject. I see these all the time. I have many right outside my front door. But, I don’t think I’ll ever look at them in quite the same way again and without remembering this image…
