Ahh, returning to the scene of an earlier crime! And I can see why. This, too, is great. I enjoyed going back and forth repeatedly between this and the other trying to decide which is "better" (a silly exercise, but . . ) And I can't decide. It depends on what you want to say. I like the angle you've taken here and I like the background wash on the previous one. Which is to say, they're both great.

Two of a kind. I prefer the first lily and the second background. But only the whole image matters and are both very, very good. They create different moods on the viewer, more optimistic the former, more subdued the later.

I love the detail in the "veins" of the flower... Great shot!

I agree with Antonio Pires's comments about the two Lilies. I'm more aware of the first as an image; the second as capturing the essence of the flower.

The Calla Lily is my favorite type, so eloquent. And so is this shot, great seeing all the flowers everyone has now. Thanks!

One of my favorite flowers, I have yet to capture as nicely as you have here. Love how you can see the vein work in the flower. Beautiful Image.
