@Vert Pomme: Thank you! :-)
Beautiful light and color. Your DOF is perfect. I'm assuming the background is other flowers?

@Julie Brown: Thank you. Yes, the Bg is composed of more of the same Mums. I had to hand-hold the camera, which is unusual for me, because I couldn't get the angle I wanted with the tripod.
Stunning shot Anita

It is magnificent the way the bright linear petals
stand out so brightly against that gloriously colored pink background.

@Arnd: Thank you.
As you know, the chrysanthemum is a much-beloved flower here in Japan. Even the Emperor uses it for the imperial crest. And because my daughter was born in the fall, her name includes the character for chrysanthemum (菊). They are a beautiful flower, and your presentation here shows why. There is something of stately grace to these wonders. I especially like how (as you always do) you pay attention not just to the flower, but to the background so that it works together as a unified photo. Beautiful!

@GJC: GJC: Thank you for your lovely comment. Your daughter is fortunate to have the character for Chrysanthemum in her name--a constant reminder of beauty.
Beautiful! Love the pink!

That's a real beauty, Anita... in your style too.

@Earnest: Thank you! I'm glad others recognize my style, because I have no clue what it is.
You have answered my pending question in reply to Julie, above . . the flower looks entirely within its own element - and, now, I know why ! This is such a confident-looking shot and so complete, somehow.
