Very lovely. Good details in the white, a place where some photographers fail. Well done!

Oh, I just love Peonies, Anita. My Grandmother had a gorgeous peony bush when I was growing up. You captured the elegance so well.

I associate peonies (beautiful as they are) with mass. This photo (your eye and use of light) opens up the delicate nature of this flower in charming and captivating way.
