Taken Monday at Longwood Gardens, Pennsylvania, USA. I wish there was not so much busy-ness on the right side.

Refreshingly beautiful, Anita. A real feeling of spring in this shot.

Beautiful shot of this flower....crystal clear, and water droplets make it more special!!

My eyes are drawn to the water drops and the tiny, tiny little pink in the very center of the blossom. Visiting your blog is a beautiful way of starting my morning.

Delicacy and beauty -- both captured in a masterful manner.

It is so fresh and beautiful.
I saw a bud on my peony about ready to open when I left the house this morning.

Good flower portrait. Sometimes we don't get the best of environments (right busy-ness).

Beautiful to the point of emotion . . what a lovely portrait of the flower.

You mentioned that you think the right corner is too busy??? What would make it less busy for you?? Lighten the dark areas, add some blur to the area?? Vignette around the image?
My eye goes to the detail and then around the edges, but I find myself going back to the flower for details; raindrops, the pink in the middle.

@Mary: Thanks for the suggestions. In this image, I already blurred, cloned and lightened the right side. My skill level did not allow me to go further without it being noticeable. I didn't vignette, and that is something I will try.
Gran macro con una extraordinaria nitidez.

Exquisite detail. You are doing nice things with that D300.

@john4jack: Thank you, Jack. It is all the camera. :-)
Superbe pivoine arbustive sous la pluie. Superbe rendu des couleurs. J'aime beaucoup le contraste entre ce jaune lumineux et ce rose bonbon.

The flower looks beautiful. Anita, since the left side looks so good, I am wondering what would have happened had you moved a couple of steps to the right. Would that have given you a clearer background or introduced more competing elements from the other direction?

Great shot Anita, love those water droplets and of course the beautiful colors. Just read you have a new camera and lens. Of course you know I believe it's the best combination, a D300 and Sigma. Best of luck with the new equipment.

Anita, I actually like the stuff on the right side. I think it's balanced nicely against the openness of the left side, while providing a sense of setting and surroundings. And the dof on it is perfect, so it can contribute without being a distraction. That's just my two cents. I think it's a great photo!! :)
