I really enjoy the diagonal and the movement of the background. So nicely composed! And that green just knocks me out!!

I agree with Dulcie. The composition is so gentle and revealing of the flower. And how about that green!

Simple and beautiful.

Beautiful composition, Anita. I love how the bokeh gives the sense of movement.

You have captured fall with the texture and color of the leaves. I've just come in for a quick break after digging up my dahlia tubers, and your photos are a treat. We have similar plants, but you have such an eye for composition and light.
