Lovely photo. I like the "look" you have achieved. And thanks for volunteering the information about how you achieved it. :-) That is very helpful!

@Dulcie: Thank you for your comment. I'm glad my explanation helped. It is how we all learn from others.

A beautiful blossom shot. I like the minute detail you capture. The color is subtle and very effective as is the white background. Very well done.

The white foam core background gives the image an entirely different look than what I'm accustomed to seeing from you -- a more, ummmmm, graphic look perhaps. As always, you achieved wonderful clarity and detail.

Not so sure I like the white background...seems not quite as "dramatic" as on a darker background...composition is lovely, but again, i'd love to have seen this shot, on something darker...

@Susan: I'm experimenting. You are not the only photographer who does not like a white BG. I do appreciate your comments!

Stunning! Love the contrast..the light..the simplicity of the white background.

Stunningly artistic composition here . . the soft, natural colors make this a perfect study.

I have to get used to the white background. It's similar to studies painted on a white cardboard or canvas.

Interesting to see the range of views about the background. I group this photo with others you've done that remind me of designs on glazed porcelain. Delightful as design. I also enjoy the opportunity to see this flower in such a different context from the lovely mass we have in the garden.

I really like the processing you have done here. It suits the object very well.

Marvelous composiition, Anita. Again I'd like to see this in a dark background for the pop factor.
