@Rochelle: Thank you!

Tomas Turecek from Czech Republic

I love these warm colour tones changing on the tips. I also love the curves of the petals. Composition is great, too. Still I like the previous post little bit more, mainly because of the glow and unusual composition.

Barbara, this is stupendous! So beautiful and soft. The color is outstanding! Wonderful close up and perspective! And the focus is outstanding, I just love that different world that we enter when we "zoom in" on a flower...like walking into a new paradise. This is magnificent, Barbara!
