This proves that one can't have too much a good thing. Your exquisite flower images were good in the original form...and wonderful here, in this fresh, vivid collection.

Tomas Turecek from Czech Republic

This all together is just... stunning, Barbara. Just stunning. It looks like a front cover of a calendar for previous year :) It fwould be also excellent poster/invitation to your exhibition.

@Tomas Turecek: Thanks for that encouragement, Tomas. Several have suggested that and I guess one never feels they are 'ready' for such an endeavor. :-O

You do gorgeous work! This would make a wonderful poster. What program do you use to create a collage or a tryptych? The only one I know how to use is in PSE. Oh, and thanks for all that info on the iphone apps.

@Julie Brown: Thanks, Julie. I did them in PS. I opened the web-sized images of what I could use, sized them all to 302 x 200 (I think) on a canvas measuring 1200 x 1000 (approx) and started moving stuff around. It didn't take long to figure out what was going to work. Then I re-cropped, flattened, and added a tad more sharpening.

Anita from West Nottingham, United States

You have so many stunning flower photos, I don't know how you whittled the selection down. I agree with Tomas' comment.

Hey, Barbara, this is lovely! I like the way that you arranged them all, and it works so well to have the daisy-like blooms at the top and bottom. You have a super great collection here! Why don't you go into the greeting card business!!!??
