I like the dreamy look to this. Like it is springing out of a surreal dream. Marvelous work, Anita.

Hi Anita. I really like the expose here. It creates a very nice (as others have said) dreamy feel to the image. I also like the marbled background. It works well with the leaves. I do wish (and it is a wish against nature) that the stem wasn't so long. It seems to push the flower so high in the frame and leaves so much space toward the bottom. But that's the nature of the beast! Nice job.

What an appealing, delicate image. The diffused glow which provides detail, but also a soft look makes this
shot exceptionally strong!
