Like a dream... that was my first thought when I looked at the photo. I find it very difficult to make a nice photo of columbines and you made a I think you did great job here. It has very nice colours and all the "wash out" look evokes dreaminess, airiness and feminineness. I can imagine it hanging on a wall in some country house kitchen. Great work!
