I like your flower photos and this one is just perfect! I also take photos of flowers and floral abstracts and I think that this flower is something that floral macro photographer would play with for hours :)

Wonderful detail and colors. The light from behind brings out the veings of the leaf.
I had to smile when I saw this, we have same first name and I posted this in June.

This is very special! It can be a map with roads in red and then marshy areas where the patches of white surrounded by green appear! An excellent idea and execution!
