    Simply put, this is exquisite!

  • Thank you very much, Katherine, and I’m so glad you like it! For once, this was all about showing the beauty of an entire flower and not macro views.

    Classic, indeed. I like the echoing green curves dimly seen in the background.

  • Thank you very much, Bette, most especially for picking up on the subtleties that I lavished some attention on in post-processing. :)
